The Independent oct 24 – review Isungset

One senses a certain froideur…In fact, Isungset is that rare thing: an ice musician, who writes songs about winter and plays them on ice instruments (ice horn, ice harp, icefone…). They are sung by fellow Norwegian Lena Nymark as if breathing loudly. Occasionally, you hear an ice guitar or ice Hardanger fiddle. To listen is to watch frost form. It is still, barely melodic, thinly harmonic and always, always chilly. Fans of Bjork’s Vespertine will certainly get it.
