Crush is the musical identity of singer/songwriter and visual artist Annsofie Salomon. Though her debut has yet to be released, she is hardly a newcomer to the Tambourhinoceros roster. While her debut recordings have been slowly growing behind the scenes, Crush has 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, Crush’s artistic universe has traces of organic folk scattered throughout. But just as she transforms organic subjects into otherworldly images in her visual art, Crush’s sonic landscape uses her songwriting as a canvas for surreal and electronic impressionism.
Crush 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.
