Norway’s Ice Princess Comes State-Side

July 9th, 2008 by

It’s not often that our American ears are graced with the sound of Norwegian artists (I won’t include death-metal on that list). But, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that one of Scandinavia’s biggest artists and female DJs is releasing an album in the United States on Island Records. ANNIE first came to my attention when I was vacationing in Belgium in 2004 and her single, “Chewing Gum,” was topping the charts in the land of chocolate and waffles. The girl blends electronic blips and beats with plenty of pop sensibility, but is just obscure enough in North America to be enjoyed by hipsters and the so-called “urban cool kids”.
