In recent years, Amalie Holt Kleive has made a name for herself in the Norwegian underground with her utterly unique signature; she combines jazz with music and electronica. At the same time, she is delicate and heartfelt in her appearance and narrates in a way that touches you. In February, she released her debut album, “De løper der jeg går” – a solid and elegant self-production with the help of Vetle Junker (Verdensrommet, Metteson) and Peder Kolsung (Sigrid).
The 27-year-old possesses a crystal-clear worldview, melodiousness and vocal use, where the electronic goes hand in hand with elements of jazz and vice pop, but also without the ironic-naive style of so many other of today's younger vice singers. It is poignant sometimes, where skinless inquiries flow through chilling synth flakes. – Audun Vinger, DN
If this is the future of Norwegian pop music, the future is bright. – Morgenbladet
Through an exploratory and elaborate mixing and a conscious flair for dramaturgical development, the listener is held firmly in hand throughout. – The class match, 5/6
