Anna von Hausswolff plays an intimate show for Convergence at St John on Bethnal Green.
Anna von Hausswolff’s voice is that of an enchantress. Unearthly and wise beyond her years, she swoops from whispered incantations to ghastly shrieks, as though presiding over a black mass. Courageously ransacking a multitude of musical approaches, her latest outing, ‘The Miraculous’, is single-minded and radical, unflinching in its quest to reveal a world as ugly as it is beautiful. It’s a place everyone should explore, secure in the knowledge that the experience will affect them deeply, and remain with them indefinitely.
“Part banshee-voiced member of a witches’ coven, part Sweden’s highbrow answer to Mogwai, Anna von Hausswolff is a genuine one-off...the boldness of her vision is compelling” **** Guardian
Support comes from Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith. "It's a difficult balance, pulling in pieces from the fringes of electronic culture and framing them in something so delightfully breezy. Smith triggers sounds that bounce around like hyperactive jellybeans, making it feel like her electronic bleeps and bloops are lost in joyous conversation with one another." Pitchfork
