2015 was a great year for Frokedal, the Norwegian singer-songwriter who’s been making icy folk with minimalist production. She’s still gearing up to release her new album Hold On Dreamer and her latest single ‘The Sign’ comes from it.
It’s an unusual track in that it’s the only one from Hold On Dreamer to include drums, courtesy of Olaf Olsen and super producer Todd Terje. Frokedal had this to say about the track: “I tried the arrangement in several different settings, until Olaf and I pieced together a recording of it with him on the drums and me banging it out on an acoustic guitar at his house. And that’s what you can still hear at the heart of the track. It’s the biggest arrangement on the album.”
