Jennie Abrahamson Short Info

To say that Jennie Abrahamson is better that ever is hardly an exaggeration. On her last album, “Gemini Gemini”, she proves this over and over again. It is brilliantly arranged pop music, with a touch of melancholic hope under the surface, along with Jennie’s sharp voice, which resides somewhere between Kate Bush, Joni Mitchell.

The harmonies are recognized. They are made up by equal parts 80′s, the scarce landscapes of northern Sweden, asian kitsch, and booming rhythms from warmer climates. Jennie Abrahamson has always loved to mix and match. Her key phrase is “minimalistic maximalism” – lots of sound, but from as few and clear sound sources as possible. However, a new album was not always a certainty. The journey towards the album went from her being sick of the music industry, via the university, a long tour together with her friends in Ane Brun’s band, and finally: an unexpected awakening on an arena tour as a warm-up act and duet partner with her biggest childhood hero Peter Gabriel.
Most of the songs were written on mallet instruments and kalimbas, something that can be heard in the productions. A first sample came as early as in the fall of 2013, in the song “Phoenix”, which she released in connection with her being support for another Peter Gabriel tour, this time in Europe. Where “Phoenix” displayed a refined minimalism with it’s minimalist beat, booming bass and ethereal melody, her first official single “The War” gives us extra everything. Driven by an infectious beat, a string section and an evocative choir, it raises the theme of the feminist awakening, and a desire to stand up for true values and equal rights.
