Check ‘Em Out: Ane Brun – “Do You Remember”

Much like her music, the path that led Ane Brun to It All Starts With One was peaceful, unhurried and full of unexpected, subtle surprises. It’s taken her from her small Norwegian hometown of Molde, to Barcelona where she was a street performer, and across the US last year supporting Peter Gabriel and singing on his New Blood album. The adventures culminated with the making of her new album It All Starts with One, a platinum hit in Norway for which she just won their Grammy equivalent, the Spellemann award, for best female artist.

Lead single “Do You Remember” is a euphoric, almost tribal track characterized by three drummers and backing vocals from fellow Scandinavians First Aid Kit. Album closer “Undertow” is a widescreen epic that brings the album to a heart-wrenching climax. Ane Brun has created an album full of struggles and the strength it takes to move forward. It All Starts with One is a revelatory work by an uncompromising artist at the height of her powers.
