Susanne Sundfor – For Every Story Untold

Susanne Sundfør continues the expansion of her musical universe with her new album, The Silicone Veil (2012), a follow-up to the critically acclaimed, platinum-selling The Brothel (2010), which spent 30 weeks in the Norwegian album charts and sold more than 40 000 copies.

Where The Brothel was seen to gravitate towards a dark, cold and closed musical expression, The Silicone Veil contains melodies that hint of warmth and fullness, bound in multifaceted and complex soundscapes. The album lyrics, however, point in a different direction: towards despondency and the loss of illusions, faith and hope. They explore our inability to understand the difficult times we find ourselves in and appreciate the consequences of the lives we are leading, rather than denying them. Thematically, The Silicone Veil centres on the blurred boundaries between one state of being and another, between life and death, between people, and between us and the Earth. As Sundfør summarises it: “Apocalypse, death, love and snow”.

First single taken from the new album, “White Foxes”, was immediately well-received by critics, bloggers and tweeting fans across the world by release. The track is in many ways a musical bridge and a natural extension of the soundscape from The Brothel. About the video, Susanne says: “The White Foxes video combines two worlds that are essential to my upcoming album, The Silicone Veil: The ancient world: forests, ruins, and the contemporary world: technology, silicone. And everything is covered in snow, just like in The Dead by James Joyce. We are all in capsules”.

For Every Story Untold was formed when Lauren Edman and Brian Caesar met in the winter of 2009 in Astoria, NY. A lifelong musician, Edman had previously written and played with several artists, making appearances on Sleepthief’s album The Dawnseeker and Delta-S’s Voyage to Isis. Caesar had previously been the bassist for As Tall As Lions, significantly helping in the writing and production of the band’s debut album Lafcadio. Since his departure from the group in 2004, he had only picked up his bass for a handful of shows with other artists, and he began refocusing on writing songs with supernatural elements in mind. Sharing drinks and chiming glasses, the two were quickly brought to the conclusion that they should collaborate on some music.

The first song they wrote together was “Hideout.” The arrangement was derived from part of a score to a story that Caesar had written years ago. Edman took this background music and came up with a haunting vocal melody that gave the song new life. Caesar began to lay down other ideas that he had developed over the years in his Queens, NY apartment including the lyrical ghost stories “Mistakes We’ve Made” and “When This Nightmare Ends Its Course.”

As the songs came closer to completion, sound by sound and layer by layer, Edman and Caesar found that each track had begun to establish its own identity, each reaching a different range of emotion within it. These songs capture the emotional acrobatics of a person reciting an urban legend to his or her friends on a dark night.

For Every Story Untold digitally released their debut EP Hideout in August 2010, and they are currently putting the finishing touches on their first full length album scheduled for a fall 2013 release.
