Kari Bremnes's new album, LY (Shelter), features 11 fresh songs spanning a wide range of ideas, visions and musical temperament. Bremnes is not afraid to look into all the nooks and crannies of life, writing about how she sees the world through her eyes, where you see ugly and beautiful and light and dark in the same picture. Her songs are about simmering anger and love, about the desire for true fashion, about dancing, death, the fate of a strong woman on the polar island of Svalbard, and about finding warmth. In short, about seeking shelter.
