We Become Ourselves OUT NOW via Control Freak Kitten Records

"This is an album that creates its own world, one where the hand-built organ she plays employs branches and car exhausts to forge a unique sound" 4/5 Mojo
LISTEN TO 'Multicoloured Hummingbird' via Soundcloud

"[Karijord] joins the small clutch of artists who manage to sound like a pioneer, not a follower." Drowned in Sound " inspirational." Bowlegs

Rebekka Karijord releases her brand new single ‘Multicoloured Hummingbird’ on January 14th, coinciding with her first UK shows since 2011 and beginning at London’s Borderline on 16th January.  
Taken from We Become Ourselves, ‘Multicoloured Hummingbird’s’ delicately nimble nature belies a melody that lingers long and heavy. Uplifting and beautiful, it highlights Karijord's astonishing vocal capabilities.

"Rebekka Karijord is an enchanting songstress, an unparalleled performer and a gifted writer. She’s the whole package." Pennyblack
Born in Sandnessjøen, just south of the Arctic Circle in Northern Norway, Karijord began playing music at an early age, her experiments with piano and violin later influenced by the diverse tastes of her mother – which included strong female figures like Janis Joplin, Patti Smith and Sheila Chandra – and her father, who favoured the likes of Neil Young and The Rolling Stones.

If her 2009 debut, The Noble Art Of Letting Go was an album in which she found her voice, her second album, We Become Ourselves, is arguably the finest of her career to date – Karijord has crafted a record of unforgettable, eerie magic as epic and peaceful as the Northern Norwegian landscape into which she was born. From the disembodied, ghostly voice that opens the album (‘Prayer’) to the haunting piano line with which it ends (‘Bandages’), it tugs forcibly at the heartstrings, its songs packed with a unique and astonishing mix of tenderness, joy, heartache and drama that reflects her personal childhood story.
More Praise For ‘We Become Ourselves’
"a whole load of talent" Mudkiss

“It's an ambitious project – especially considering it's the first half of a conceptual whole – but this is hard to fault when Karijord delivers with such maturity and grace.” The Skinny

"Heady and deep without being inaccessible, it is a set of songs which reward repeated listening and one which younger challengers would be right to envy" The Line Of Best Fit "absolutely sublime" Music OHM

"essential." Electric Banana “We Become Ourselves [is] a completely absorbing, expressive and soulful…” Zero Core
