Lea Kampmann wants to be a gentle companion for your daily contemplations.
The first time we wrote about Lea Kampmann, almost five years ago, we were delighted by the debut EP by then 20-yeard-old artist, a release which made her a winner at the Faroese Music Awards. Forward three years and we got a chance to hear “Higher”, the first taste of what was to become her proper debut album “If I ever made you cry, I’m sorry”, as precious as its predecessor.
Before it came out this spring, Lea release the second single and video from the LP called “Ghost”, written with „Ghost” (written together with Greta Svabo Bech), a showcase of her gentle but sturdy vocals undescored by digital effects and electronic beats, a 3-minute journey from bedroom pop to the dancefloor.
Even when more upbeat, “If I ever made you cry, I’m sorry” is an intimate release, quite electronic in the overall feel, and there are thoroughly meditative songs like “Í Ævir”, a rare departure from English.
In no way it’s a depressive album though. On the contrary, its inwardness has mostly light and bright tones of soft pop music, a gentle companion for your daily contemplations.
