    After The Great Storm is an emphatic record, conjuring up moments of hope and reassurance for difficult times, but also unafraid to reveal flashes of vulnerability and insecurity, all conveyed through an unfiltered and organic new style for Brun.

    Brun has such control of her craft, and that is made brightly plain across these two albums [After The Great Storm & How Beauty Holds The Hand Of Sorrow]. Which one you prefer will likely depend on which genre or style you have deeper inclination for, but taken together, they’re both excellent representations of an artist honing her tested and true style while also venturing out into new waters, easily proving just how capable she is along the way.

    Ane Brun's eighth album of original music is a slow-burning delight, full of melodies that linger long after the record has stopped spinning.

    Musically, it’s more ambitious and further reaching than any of Brun’s previous records.

    Beguiling if familiar thanks to the many echoes of Jessie Ware and Goldfrapp at their most forlorn. [Jan 2021, p.23]

    An intense, trip-hoppy and orchestral examination of love in all its forms. [Dec 2020, p.88]
