Lost Girls (Jenny Hval and Håvard Volden) Return With New Single ‘Ruins’

    Lost Girls – the collaborative project of Jenny Hval and Håvard Volden – have returned with a new song, ‘Ruins’. It comes alongside the announcement of an autumn tour, including a show in New York City and a wave of UK and European dates. Check it out below.

    “Håvard sent me this long, wonderful and kaleidoscopic bass line on top of a drum machine track that I had no clue what to do with — it felt too difficult to try to learn or tame it,” Hval explained in a statement about the new single. “I started improvising with it and moving parts around a bit, and the song began to feel like getting lost in a city at night, or a cemetery, walking around in circles, perhaps running, perhaps hiding. After improvising for a bit I realized that I was singing about this kind of pattern of movement, but as a band practice in the 90s, back when I first started playing with other people. If ‘Ruins’ is ‘about’ anything, it’s about a practice of discovery, being young and lost and feeling as if you are close to something ancient and magical.”

    Lost Girls released their debut album, Menneskekollektivet, in 2021.
