Nora Karlsson is also the drummer in the band HOLY. But Boys is just Nora and after almost a year spent with her debut album ”Rest in Peace” we can say that just Nora is more than enough. I like albums that takes me to other places, and I like albums that takes me from myself for a while. This album does it all. The strength is in the versatility, where every song stands for itself. But together they create something even more. I love the dreamy shimmer and I love when she makes it to a waltz and when she oscillates between a sweeping The Band-sound and pure psychedelic parts.
She puts her voice in the background even though the words should be in the front but that only makes you want to listen even more, and takes you closer to the music. Sometimes you just need to speak silently to be heard. The reason we put this as one of the best albums of the year isn’t only because of the songs. ”Rest in Peace” is a album as an album should be. You want to listen to it from start to end, not pick out parts or put it on random. You can’t divide a perfect jewelry. (Fabian Forslund, Que Club/beehype)
