About

EN

Maria Somerville draws on folk forms alongside post-punk, traditional Irish motifs, starry eyed pop and hypnotic drones to create wholly original music that is borne of her roots in Connemara, Western Ireland.

Her self-released 2019 debut album, All My People, channeled the wilderness of the Irish landscape through dense, ethereal soundscapes, bare-boned percussion and a heady electronic undertow, interspersed with ghostly vocals that are ever present and all encompassing, like crystalline glints of sunshine peeking through dark stormy clouds.

Now signed to 4AD, we’re bound to hear even more from Maria Somerville in the years to come, and her show at by:Larm 2022 is your chance to catch an artist in the sweet spot between her early, alluring experimentation and the greatness to come.

Med inspirasjon fra så varierte kilder som folk, post-punk, tradisjonell irsk musikk, ekspansiv pop og hypnotiske droner, har Maria Somerville klart å male et lydlerret som er helt og holdent hennes eget, sterkt preget av nøttene i Connemara i vest-Irland.

Hennes selvutgitte debutalbum fra 2019, All My People, skapte bølger i musikkundergrunnen med sitt musikalske landskapsmaleri av Irland. Nå er hun signert til plateselskapet 4AD (Big Thief, Jenny Hval, Erika de Casier) og det er mildt sagt spennende ting i gjære. Maria Somervilles konsert på by:Larm 2022 er din sjanse til å oppleve en artist med én fot i sine forlokkende tidlige eksperimenteringer, og en annen i en særdeles interessant framtid.

Highlights
  • Signed to 4AD (Big Thief, Jenny Hval, Erika de Casier)
