A Song for the Day #161 – Guns

guns-1024x682

Who is she? – Guns is a 24 year old singer songwriter from Norway named Gunhild Jarwson Tekle.  This track ‘Ricochet’ is her debut release.

What does she sound like? – Guns style of dream-pop has gained comparison to the likes of Tei Shi, The Knife, Kate Bush and Solange.  I get a Beach House vibe from it though and the track is worth listening to just for the killer chorus.

When is her next release? – Who knows.  This is only her debut release and there is no mention of any upcoming music. 

Where can you see her? – As above, no dates have been confirmed yet but I’m sure something will come along soon enough.

What does her PR say about her?Guns perfected her sound and song craft in Copenhagen, Denmark, where she initially attended art-school, but was quickly distracted by her love of music and began working on a collection of songs, which she plans to release later this year as an EP.
She cites Kate Bush, Blood Orange, David Lynch and Abba as key influences, some of which can be heard in her debut track ‘Ricochet’ a dreamy synth soaked ethereal dream-pop ballad which lyrically explores the temporary and transient nature of life.
