Oslow, Norway-based bedroom pop artist Marie Ulven has been releasing music as Girl in Red since 2016. Her intimate songs intertwine sweetness and melancholy with a fuzzy nostalgic aesthetic. The most resonant of them address her sexuality as a young queer person with endearing directness; "girls" is the kind of song I wish was around when I was in high school, while both "we fell in love in october" and its video are soaked in the pangs of adolescent love.
Girl in Red just released a new single, "watch you sleep," which you can listen to below, along with some of her other songs. She's hitting the road on tour in May, mostly in Europe, but she'll also head to the US for shows in NYC and LA. Her NYC show happens at Baby's All Right on May 14, and tickets go on sale Friday (1/25) at 10 AM. See all of Girl in Red's upcoming tour dates below.
