Product Description

Product Description

Already an established star in Scandinavia , Norwegian born Swedish based singer songwriter s 3rd album is now beginning to make her mark in the U.K. The album has already received plays on BBC Radio 2 , BBC6 and XFM and is scheduled to be Mojo s November album of the month in the World Music category. Drawing comparisons to Kate Bush , Florence & The Machine and inevitably Bjork, We Become Ourselves is at times bleak and haunting , a dark and deeply personal album exploring issues of life and death . Rebekka will be touring the U.K later this year .

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute gem 7 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Rebekka Karijard's latest aibum, We Become Ourselves, is an absolute gem. The entire albums is infused with haunting melodies, hypnotic arrangements and intelligent lyrics, from the pulsing tempo of the opening track (Prayer), through the almost calypso qualities of Multicoloured Hummingbird to the funeral meloncholy of the final track (Bandages) the listener is never in doubt that this is music for grown ups.
Some of her songs are slightly reminiscent of her fellow Scandanavian songstressess (particular Ane Brun and Ingrid Olava) but that's no bad thing because, in this reviewers humble opinion, the current crop of Scandanavian female singer songwriters is exceptional and Ms Karijard's work never comes close to losing it's own distinctive quality..
I don't know whether there is such a thing as a Scandavian sound, but for anyone who wants to listen to music that resonates beyond the ear and touches the place where our hopes, fears, dreams, pain, joy and aspirations live, I not only recommend this album, but also suggest that you look north and check out Ane Brun, Ingrid Olava, Susan Sundfor, Agnes Obel, Nina Kinert and other Scandanavian female singer songwriters

4.0 out of 5 stars Old World Siren 6 Nov 2012
By Gannon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The industry's conveyor belt of female voices continues to roll, but with Rebekka Karijord`s on-going evolution from run-of-the-mill sombre songstress to ambitious composer and arranger it seems to have gifted one with way more than the usual iota of personality.

In possession of an especially impressive set of lungs, Karijord is unquestionably branching out with We Become Ourselves. Picking up where her debut album's single "Parking Lot" left off, the thematically dark "Use My Body While It's Still Young" bubbles with rhythmic handclaps and alt-pop hooks that stick with Lykke Li-like persistence around a line of vintage organ progressions. So too are the swells and mildly threatening undertow of "Your Love" born of the sort of intelligent, slightly dark pop for which we have the likes of Florence to thank.

Yet it's misleading to assume We Become Ourselves is full of such turns. With its sparse percussion, the atmospheric opener "Prayer" does a far better job of setting the overall scene , Karijord cooing like the wind of her native Norway and testing her register periodically with wildly melismatic dalliances. The track also introduces a clever inversion of type too when a sinister lurching is added via a deep male choir who reappear both on the spine-tingling "You Make Me Real" (which hangs on the most minimal percussive clicking and dither of evocative strings), as well as on the otherwise neither-here-nor-there "Save Yourself", which closes with an organ-accompanied, almost ecclesiastical exercise in reverence.

The mood is altogether lighter, more optimistic and playful during "Multicolored Hummingbird". Neverthless, and despite an operatic turn at its midpoint, it perhaps lacks the depths elsewhere apparent on this strong LP.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible. 18 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD
Rebekka Karijord's incredible talent is prevalent throughout the whole of We Become Ourselves as each song shows off her stunning vocals and impressive song-writing ability.

Opener `Prayer' is haunting as Karijord's eerie harmonies and effortlessly pure high-range vocals pierce through the rhythmic percussion. Achingly beautiful harp arpeggios, resonating deep cello and shakes of the tambourine add atmosphere to the already striking title track `We Become Ourselves'. `Use My Body While It's Still Young' is the first single from We Become Ourselves and carries a notion of alarm as the fast paced bass accompaniment is dark and ominous. Not only is the single inventive but it also has a memorable chorus and a firm hook proving that Rebekka Karijord is hit material too.

Throughout the album, Karijord showcases her knack for developing tracks as each song begins with a certain melody that by the end has grown into something more complex and innovative. 'Your Love' demonstrates this best as at every interval a new instrument is added: strings, piano, more percussion, the list is endless. The foreboding minor melody that underlies `Your Love' really gives the track a personality and a creepy uneasy feel to it.

Karijord's melancholy hums on `You Make Me Real' accompanied by a lone acoustic guitar and deep strings, further demonstrates her amazing gift for song. The development of the initial melody swells into a full bodied harmony section before dropping right down and progressing into an exquisite canon. On `An Ode To What Was Lost' Karijord completely blows everything else out of the water as her vocals become ethereal and outrageously high before slipping effortlessly straight back into a low, rich tone.
