Having already solidified her position at the forefront of music in her native Norway, SISSY WISH is bringing her innovative style of indie pop to American shores. She will tour in support of her first US release, Beauties Never Die, which is slated for a September 22nd release on Afternoon Records in the US.
In conjunction with the stateside release of Beauties Never Die, SISSY WISH will be the featured artist on AOL Music/Spinner.com’s Listening Party the week of Sept. 28. Fans can tune in at www.spinner.com to hear the album in its entirety, for free.
Beauties Never Die, which was produced by Scandinavian super-producer Jorgen Traen (Sondre Lerche, Jazzkammer, Kayzers Orchestra, The Golden Serenades,) has already been wildly well-received in the US. “Beauties Never Die balances maturity and wonder,” said Pitchfork in an eight-star review, going on to say, “Bolstering her charming eccentricities is an eclecticism that makes Beauties wide-ranging yet surprisingly cohesive.” NYLON raved “sixties pop-goes-synth has never sounded better, with Wish’s Kate Bush-on-helium voice breaking beautifully over the catchy hooks of songs like ‘Float’ and ‘Dwts’.”
The future for SISSY WISH in America is bright if her past achievements are any indication. Most notably, her full-length debut You May Breathe received a Norwegian Grammy in 2005.
