Annsofie Salomon is a singer/songwriter and visual artist who, even before the release of her debut EP, had already made a name for herself through a performance at SPOT Festival and a string of shows supporting Alice Boman, Courtney Marie Andrews, and Lowly.
Blossoming from the roots of an upbringing steeped in folk music, Annsofie Salomon's artistic universe has traces of organic folk scattered throughout. But just as she transforms organic subjects into otherworldly images in her visual art, Annsofie Salomon’s sonic landscape uses her songwriting as a canvas for surreal and electronic impressionism.
Annsofie Salomon expands on her roots with contemporary influence in the vein of El Perro Del Mar or Joanna Newsom, artistically gesturing with dissonance and coincidence. She uses her music as the plane in which harmony and dissonance, and narrative and coincidence clash, synthesizing new meaning through the encounter.
The lyrics of her debut single "Soft Dreams" are composed from the titles of her sculptures and paintings, pieces of art that now — by her own hand — rest at the bottom of Copenhagen Harbour. Salomon's debut EP, however, is a message in a bottle, washed ashore from the depths of the ocean. Only Space and Time Can Tell How to Breathe in an Ocean Shell is a collection of hard-earned lessons from the most crushing times in her life, the foremost being that the universe will always show you how to breathe if you find yourself lost underwater.
On its surface, Salomon's debut EP follows her search for expression through bouts of difficulty and failure. At its depths, Only Space and Time... is a new sculpture, resurrecting the significance of her sunken ones.
