Jenny Hval Unveils New Song ‘Buffy’

    Jenny Hval has released a new single titled ‘Buffy’. It follows the Norwegian singer-songwriter’s latest album Classic Objects, which came out earlier this year. Check it out below.

    “Somehow, I improvised some lyrics that referred to Buffy The Vampire Slayer, probably just because I have watched it so many times,” Hval explained in a statement. “I do like the idea that a TV series with many episodes, like Buffy, can be used as a creative and political rehearsal. An episodic form rehearsing overthrowing a dictatorship, a plutocracy, or theocracy?”

    “‘Buffy’ is not a song about a slayer, a superhero, or feminist icon,” she added. “If anything, it’s a song about hope, but in an understated and episodic way. Because to me, hope is more hopeful when it is presented in a subtle way.”
