Frida Hvy?nen:: Silence Is Wild; Tour

In Matisse’s The Piano Lesson, he teaches us that the imperative placed on the artist is to play his or her role to fruition. Directly and indirectly, all that ties in with Frida Hvyönen’s new record Silence Is Wild, where she displays a variety of scenes, specifically her own, done in stunning grey. As Frida resuscitates some very personal episodes, Silence Is Wild settles in as a work of poignant isolation with a cold and dreary backdrop silencing all outside noise. The songs are entries concerning inner dialogue, confessions, and other conundrums of the human condition, that perhaps we wouldn’t have braved on our own had they otherwise been in plain sight. Whether it be scenes of “Dirty Dancing,” where young love blooms in the long winter; the knotted confusion of “My Cousin”; or “Science,” with that view having lost its lustre; the expansive cool draft of Silence Is Wild will find a way through the creases of your soul. Excellent.
