On Fresh is the Word, we like to deliver wisdom through great stories from the minds of bright creatives of pop culture. Through those stories, we like to dissect the journey of our guests and present actionable lessons and advice for our listeners no matter what career or avenue of artistry they pursue.
The guest for this episode is the Scandinavian blackened ambient multi-instrumentalist Sylvaine, the musical monitor of Kathrine Shepard. Her latest album, Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone, released late last year via Season Of Mist was nominated for the Spellemannprisen, often referred to as the Norwegian Grammy Awards. She is the first ever female artist to be nominated for the award in the Metal category since they added the category to Spellemannprisen in 2001.
During our chat we talked about her vision for her music, making music by herself, her experiences with parents that were in the music industry, how she goes through her days, how her music has been acclaimed in Scandinavia with the Spellemannprisen nomination, the Norway metal scene today, her musical tastes, her latest album Atoms Aligned, Coming Undone, where she gets inspiration, the effects of doing yoga, and the nature, society, and culture of Norway.
Each episode, the guest is asked to suggest someone from their life/career that should be on Fresh is the Word that would have good stories to tell. Sylvaine chose Neige from the French post-metal band Alcest, and Antoine Hadjioannou from French Occult Rock band Aluk Todolo
