Inga Liljeström is Australian with Scandinavian roots and beautiful name. And as the title of her recent album "Elk" (2005) indicates to the cold far north too, one could not expect icy landscapes surrounded by warm latin melodies. That's how eclectic and rich the record is. It is captivating with its subtle beats, lush orchestrated music and cinematic atmosphere. The comparisons vary from Björk to Lamb and early Goldfrapp, but her own diverse experiences and knowledge of aesthetics in music industry distinguish her.Read More...
ELK is a stunning, film-noirish journey from singer/songwriter Inga Liljeström - the voice behind Gerling's hit single Dust Me Selecta, Hi-Fi Mike, Friendly, d.i.g. (Curveystrasse), Itch-e & Scratch-e, Alien Headspace, ENS and many others. Now the most distinctive voice floating above Australia's musical landscape delivers her first commercially available, full-length solo album. It's a lush and beautifully cohesive, yet darkly fragile work of immense proportions. That otherworldly quality fans have always associated with Inga, reaches new heights as her stunning lyrical images find wings to soar in a fresh band-setting where talented players provide live strings, contrabass, Moricone-esque guitar, fluglehorn/trumpet, keyboards, samples and fractured beats. To say the result is cinematic, is an exercise in understatement. "21st Century film-noir for the ears" [Tim Ritchie Radio National].
