SYLVAINE Announces New EP – “Eg Er Framand” is out March 22 on SEASON OF MIST
SYLVAINE has grown into a guiding light for ambient post-metal and atmospheric black metal. But today, she’s tracing back to her roots on Eg Er Framand.
Growing up in Norway, amidst the contrasts between nature and urbanity, Kathrine Shepard often performed in the Kampen Church in Oslo. This 19th century relic is where she recorded the entirety of her ethereal new EP.
Lead single “Dagsens Auga Sloknar Ut“ comes from mysterious origins. The lyrics were written in 1891 by Elias Blix, a professor-turned-politician, who also wrote hymns. Staying true to the original’s delicate, reverent melody, Sylvaine sings in a breathy, elongated whisper that’s both haunting and soothing.
The music video for “Dagsens Auga Sloknar Ut” was directed and produced by William Lacalmontie. Kathrine dances and enchants across a magnificent tapestry of poetic landscapes, striking the beautiful balance that’s at the heart of Eg Er Framand.
With “Dagsens Auga Sloknar Ut”, Sylvaine opens the book on an intricate, transformative fairy tale.
