hukkelberg's music has always been about personal sound. this has given her great artistic freedom to move effortlessly between genres, and her three previous albums are defined by utterly distinct soundscapes: debut 'little things' (2005) was eccentric and adventurous, second offering 'rykestrasse 68' (2007) warm and lyrical, and third album 'blood from a stone' (2009) explored a huge, romantic indie rock canvas inspired by the likes of cocteau twins, pixies, pj harvey and sonic youth. the otherworldly take on pop, jazz and art rock has given hukkelberg two nominations for the norwegian grammy, mulitple tours and a wide audience internationally.
combining the noisy guitars and heavy rhythms of 'blood from a stone', the stripped-down, lyrical lightness from 'rykestrasse 68', and the weird and quirky sound picture from 'little things', 'featherbrain' creates a kind of antique pop music, at the same time brittle and soft, powerful and fragile.
