Norwegian artist Carmen Villain was born in the USA and lives in London. She has spent the last year working on her debut album, resulting in a set of songs with a defiantly DIY underground free-rock sound. Lyrics for songs like ‘Dreamo’, ‘Lifeissin’ and ‘Kingwoman’ are plasteredover loose, abrasive instrumental tracks, on which Carmen plays guitars, bass, drum machines, keyboards and percussion. The distinctive production was shared, one half produced by herself, the other by Emil Nikolaisen (Serena- Maneesh). Additional production credits and sequencing are by Norway’s cosmic disco hero, Prins Thomas.
