To those who used Anna Von Hausswolff ’s debut album, Singing From The Grave, to compare her lazily to Kate Bush, Ceremony will come as a brutal shock. The fragile atmospheres of that impressive debut have been blasted away,and what’s emerged from the wasteland left behind is a dizzying masterpiece that, she proudly states, calls upon, amongst others, Jefferson Airplane, PJ Harvey, Earth, Nick Cave and Diamanda Galás. I didn´t just want Ceremony to be a collection of songs, she says. I wanted it to be like a film, with every single part connected to the other, with shifting moods and settings, but a thread holding all the tracks together. Also featuring Hunter as a Horse.
