Song of the Week: Susanne Sundfør's 'White Foxes'

By Daniel D'Amours | The Lost Boys November 2, 2012 at 3:54PM

After 10 days straight of my roommate singing this song every minute she possibly could, it was now obvious for me to share this one with you (since it's been stuck in my head for so long, it's kind of a way for me to get rid of it). You'll probably not like it that much on first listen -- Susanne Sundfør has a very high pitch voice, strong and fragile in a way that can easily get on your nerves if you don't like those kind of singers -- but trust me, after three or four listens, you'll be stuck with it and it's gonna become your new experimental shower song.

"White Foxes" is part of her last album, "The Silicon Veil," that has been released in March. This album is pretty spiritual, most of the lyrics talk about the apocalypse, love, faith, death, earth, and everything in between... It's well orchestrated, creatively written and beautifully sung... and well worth getting beyond this song. I'd never heard Susanne Sundfør's name not too long ago, but now it's one I'm unlikely to forget.

You'll like her if you like: Florence And The Machine, Tori Amos, Bjork
What to wear while listening to that song: Being naked inside a really long fur coat.
What to do while listening to that song: Having a really long ride on a train.
What to drink while listening to that song: A triple mint liquor on ice.
