On her upcoming album, Brimheim shines an unrelenting light on the dissonance within herself with a refined fusion of organic and electronic elements. She explores her shame, frustration with prescriptive gender roles, and unmasks the parts of her that she's spent a lifetime suppressing. RATKING is the followup to Brimheim's debut album can't hate myself into a different shape, one of the most celebrated Danish albums in 2022 capturing attention from international audiences with performances at The Great Escape, Eurosonic Festival, Reeperbahn Festival, By:Larm, Iceland Airwaves and a live session at KEXP. Brimheim has received four Faroese Music Awards, the Danish publisher association's Carl Prize as Talent of the Year in 2022, and was nominated as Hope of the Year at the Danish music critics' award Steppeulven in 20 Brimheim means home of the breaking waves and just like her namesake, Danish/Faroese Helena Heinesen Rebensdorff, has quickly made an impact on the scene. In the last 3 years, she has established herself as a force to behold -- musically, lyrically, and as a live performer. Her music is genre expansive; never shying away from mixing styles and letting her knack for melody take center stage. It ranges from layered and rich to stripped down and low fidelity. But most notable, her lyrics look straight into a psyche and emotional world full of doubt, pathetic desires, and weakness. She tackles the shameful, possibly ugly, intimate feelings that are often hidden away. But with moving vocals and masterful delivery, Brimheim imbues tender beauty into these dark corners of all of us. I've been waiting over a year (...) I'm really excited about this! Kevin Cole, KEXP (US) Ridiculously infectious, it's worth comparing to Self Esteem or CMAT - yet it has a tone and tenor all of its own. Robin Murray, Clash (UK)
