Danish DIY artist LINN returns with the release of her new single “Okay, Sister” and the announcement of her new EP “Femte Dimension”, which is out 19th January.
The surreal and beguiling new track moves from acoustic ballad to manipulated and multidimensional soundscapes that weave and transform around LINN’s vulnerable and alien lyrics. The many dynamics and playful expressions are also represented on the new imagery around the forthcoming EP’s cover art and in the press photos, which when seen through stereo glasses will appear in full 3D. They were all taken by set designer Christian Friedländer, while the accompanying video for “Okay, Sister” – which was shot late at night on a small uninhabited island in southern Europe – was filmed on an old digital camera by LINN’s 4-year-old daughter.
LINN made her debut in November 2020 with her eclectic EP Happy Metal, which was a consummate introduction to her borderless style showcasing playful and eclectic arrangements that take influence from alternative rock, future R&B and electronic lo-fi. Often accompanied by bizarre sound effects, field recordings, toy instruments, the tracks were all written, produced, and recorded by LINN herself with her then newborn child on her lap. Her music balances the mesmerising and melodic with the idiosyncratic and experimental, with added lyrics that are often based on unpretentious everyday moments conveyed with humor.
In May 2021, LINN and the band Blood Child went on a Danish tour with the artistic and visual crossover concept “Shower Me In Happy Metal”, where she played her new material publicly for the first time. LINN has since gone on to support Wolf Alice, as well as appearing at a number of festivals, including SPOT festival (DK) and this summer’s Roskilde Festival (DK), which was highlighted with a 5-star review in the Danish publication Undertoner, who called her music “a terrifying, hard-hitting combination of raw rock energy and musical finesse of the highest class”.
