Norwegian singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Silje Nes is stateside for SXSW and a few NYC shows in support of Opticks, her second full-length, which arrived late last year to resounding acclaim. Nes travels in quiet moments, eking drama out of the passing, whispering seconds. But within the fuller arrangements on the new record are signals of an artful shift toward greater depth. With Yellowbirds and Ivana XL.
