Camilla Myhre, aka Varnrable, is an Ethiopian-Norweigan producer and vocalist about to release Air Born, her debut long player on the excellent Danish label Escho — home of Smerz, Iceage, and sometimes home of old Palms Out favorites When Saints Go Machine.
“On Fire”, which also features Yangze–who co-wrote the lion’s share MØ’s latest album–is tense and patient. It’s an exercise in contrasts–easygoing and sweet vocal performances from both artists float atop a synth lead that is reminiscent of a chair screeching across a schoolhouse floor. Remarkably infectious stuff, notwithstanding its more anxious elements.
I’ve also included a great song that Varnrable contributed to 2020’s Kulør 006 compilation on Courtesy’s homonymous label.
Air Born is out on April 29th, is mastered by one of my all time favorites, DJ HVAD, and as if this wasn’t enough of a confluence of some of Denmark’s finest, also features another old favorite, Choir of Young Believers. You can preorder the album on bandcamp, or stream the two singles wherever you do that.
