aaamusic | On 22, Sep 2010
Love, control and power are the prevailing themes on Ingrid Olava’s debut UK release, a four track EP available from October 25th.
The Please Welcome EP features tracks from Ingrid’s sophomore album The Guest – a No 2 hit in her native Norway – and live recordings from her performance at this year’s Oya festival.
Kicking off with Warrior Song – “an anthem to a friend who tried to save someone who didn’t want saving” the EP also includes the live and extended version of Won’t Be Silenced – a song that deals with domestic abuse and is a highlight of every Olava performance. Live recordings of Only Just Begun and Back To Love wrap up proceedings.
