"a towering and emotional roller-coaster" Bowlegs"

" an album that creates its own world as much as the hand-built organ she plays employs branches and car exhausts to forge a unique sound." World Album of the Month and top 10 Records of 2012 MOJO MAGAZINE
 
"[Karijord] joins the small clutch of artists who manage to sound like a pioneer, not a follower." Drowned in Sound
                                   
"Rebekka Karijord is an enchanting songstress, an unparalleled performer and a gifted writer. She’s the whole package." Pennyblack
Rebekka Karijord releases her brand new single ‘Multicoloured Hummingbird’ on May 6th, coinciding with an extensive European Tour in May and her appearance at this year's GREAT ESCAPE FESTIVAL in Brighton.
 
Premiered on Bowlegs, the single is taken from her 2012 album 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.  Complemented by the infectious and previously unreleased ‘Giant’. Both songs showcase Karijord’s impressive vocal range and  power, together becoming the perfect ode to spring. 
 
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.
