Crackled radio-like transmissions from Norway’s rural hinterland.
Juni Habel’s fragile finger-picked lullabies warm themselves by the open fire with her rich intimate voice atop twinkling arrangements and strange percussive instrumentation. Like glowing embers in the dark, these songs are odes to life and death, the beauty of belonging and human kinship with nature. This unyielding spirit of family and nature is etched into Carvings’ unschooled approach. With beauty in mock-simplicity and radiating humanity like the music of Nick Drake, Julie Byrne or Myriam Gendron, Juni’s songwriting unfolds on her own terms, and is the sound of facing whatever mother nature decides will find its way to the top of the list.
“An affecting, timeless piece of work from a writer on song.” The Guardian
“there’s also an underlying folk wildness, a sense of antique sheet music rustled by strong winds, muddy boots on piano pedals” **** MOJO
“Fans of Nick Drake, Karen Dalton and Neil Young will find much to enjoy in this musical equivalent of an evening spent alone by the fireside.” 4/5 The Times
