When Anna von Hausswolff makes her North America debut tonight, she probably won’t be accompanied by the mighty and majestic pipe organ of Gothenburg, Sweden’s Annedals church, which she plays throughout her deeply moving second album, Ceremony. A beautiful, elegiac song cycle inspired by the death of her grandfather, Ceremony alternates long instrumental interludes, sometimes evoking Pink Floyd and Ennio Morricone, with vocals reminiscent of Kate Bush and PJ Harvey. She studies architecture at Copenhagen’s Royal Academy of Art, and there’s an architectonic quality to tracks like “Liturgy of Light” and “Epitaph of Theodor.” The daughter of conceptual artist and sonic experimentalist Carl Michael von Hausswolff, she bends the borders of Nordic pop throughout.
