Susanna’s first soloalbum since 2012, and her eleventh album in total, is a mastodont of a singer/songwriter release. Near 70 minutes of intensely expressive, deeply felt and spiritually probing lyrics, presented and performed in layers of voice, electronics, effects and programming together with instruments as piano, violin and tuba. The artist known for  personal interpretations of songs by Joy Division, Leonard Cohen and AC/DC among others but also her strong originals , has dissected her own musical expression, collaborations and projects, and put the pieces together again creating a unique and diverse world for her songs.

‘Triangle’ is composed, arranged, played, recorded and produced by Susanna. Musicians from Norwegian bands like Supersilent, Broen, Moskus, Splashgirl and Sudan Dudan participated alongside americans Alison Chesley (Helen Money) and Emmett Kelly (The Cairo Gang).

Even in this golden age for female singer-songwriters, Susanna stands out. Her vocal has become ever more versatile and fluid, recalling at times Kate Bush, the Laurel Canyon balladry of Joni Mitchell and Laura Nyro, or the acrobatics of the Cocteau Twins’ Liz Fraser. But it’s always recognisably her own: calm and determined in the face of enormous forces and looming fears. On the terrifying ‘This / Phenomena’ it’s distorted into a digital mush, while on ‘We Don’t Belong’ it’s multitracked to a lush and enveloping chorus. Muted electro track ‘Hole’ features Anja Lauvdal and Heida Mobeck from rising art pop group Broen besides Skrap, Skadedyr and Moskus – not since Prince in the mid-80s has an existential religious crisis been so beautifully expressed with the tools of electronic pop.

Triangle is soul music for lost souls.
