Hanne Hukkelberg

Already a well-established name in her native Norway, Hanne Hukkelberg has just returned with her first new single for five years, ‘The Whip’. The release of the single marks the beginning of the countdown to her fifth album, the follow-up to 2012’s ‘Featherbrain’, which is due out later this year.

“‘The Whip’ is a combination of personal experience and a wider observation of society and how I feel people are living their lives, striving for this unrealistic idea of perfection”, says Hukkelberg. “I wanted to write about how nice – and necessary – it is to need someone. To be vulnerable in a society that encourages us to look like someone that has everything, all of the time, and doesn’t actually need anything”.

We can get into all that further down the line. What’s going to hit you first is the impressive, totally blindsiding vocal gymnastics that make this song utterly vital in the space of ten seconds.
