Album Review: Folkesange by Myrkur

Excellent, Based on 2 Critics

AllMusic - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Amalie Bruun (aka Myrkur) has explored several musical directions during her career. She's issued indie pop, electronic, and rock records solo and with Ex Cops, as well as black metal and Nordic folk as Myrkur. While black metal purists decried her for not being "true kvlt," she paid it no mind. She never said she was black metal, only that she was a fan.

Myrkur's latest offering, Folkesange, still celebrates a lot of the tropes she's known for, but takes things in a much more folk direction. This album is particularly exciting because Myrkur, aka Amalie Bruun, dove full-force into folk, covering classic songs, writing her own in the style of those old songs, and utilizing classic instrumentation to build her sound. "Fager som en Ros" is one of the standout tracks on the album and features the tagelharpa, a traditional, bowed instrument.
