Black Raven flies / as he kisses his love goodbye / he`s so hard to satisfy

Caught up in circles, craving his chain, reachin in silence into the night

Echo in the valley / a shiver in the sky/ deep down in the city/ everybody wonders why

so hard to imaging the tears in his eyes / he pushes every limit reaches for the sky...





Voelva / The Curse

released oct 2020


Press


"The world is cursed but it is possible for us to lift that curse ourselves" 


This is the message from the debut single 'The Curse' by Voelva.


"The song is about how human greed is destroying the planet. About how every individual will have to  take responsibility instead of consuming forever more. What is more important; Pure water in the taps or  growth for a multinational company that sells water in plastic bottles? The time has come to choose our  leaders wisely and not choose just for the sake of our own wallets. But as I thunder towards the corrupt, I also point the blame toward myself. My own fascination with the materialistic”, says the songwriter and  composer, who has grown up with 70s protest songs in the childhood home.


The accompanying video - edited by Nils Gudbjerg Aasholm - revolves around the songs message of a  somewhat equivocal cry for justice; we all want to change the world for the better but are struggling to  sacrifice our own privileges for the cause. 


Musically, Voelva applies the big guns. She has written, composed and produced the song, and on a bottom of a heavy, persistent drum, the dilemma is developed through 4 minutes of an intense devil ride.


It is a deal with the Devil / give them give them give them what they want / a deal with the Devil /Greed  is the curse of life / more wants more


Voelva is an experienced artist. She has well over 1,000 concerts under her belt. Both as a longtime backing singer for gospel-artist Etta Cameron and as a member of the Scandinavian Pink Floyd Project.

As a soloist in her own name, she released the single “Sister Blue” in 1999, in 2002 the album ‘Disclosure’ and performed on television and clubs in Copenhagen. Several tracks await in continuation of 'The Curse' and Voelva is planning how the songs can be taken to the stage. She guarantees that it will be "dramatic".



“Verden er forbandet men vi kan selv hæve den forbandelse”


Sådan lyder opråbet på singlen ’The Curse’ af Voelva.

Bag navnet finder man danske Trine Gry, der udgiver sin første single i 16 år. Det ekspressive rocknummer markerer samtidigt et eftertrykkeligt solistcomeback for den aktive og aktivistiske sangerinde.


I to årtier har hun stået lige uden for spotlyset, enten som korsanger, kreativ

projektleder eller kunstnerisk underviser. Nu stiller hun sig igen i centrum og genoptager den

solokarriere, hun satte på pause i 2004. For frustrationerne over verdens tilstand bobler over, så hun bliver nødt til at synge sin vrede ud. Det sker på ’The Curse’.


”Sangen handler om, hvordan menneskelig grådighed er ved at ødelægge kloden. Om hvordan vi alle sammen bliver nødt til tage ansvar i stedet for at kræve mere og mere. Altså, hvad er vigtigst, rent vand i hanerne eller vækst for et multinationalt firma som sælger vand på plastikflasker? Tiden er til at vælge vores ledere med omhu og ikke gå efter egen pengepung. Men imens jeg tordner mod fordærvet, peger jeg også pilen mod mig selv. Min egen fascination af det materielle” siger sangskriveren, der er vokset op med 70´ ernes protestsange i barndomshjemmet.


Den tilhørende video – editeret af Nils Gudbjerg  – kredser netop om den

dobbeltrolle, hun i lighed med mange andre indtager: At vi gerne vil ændre verden til

det bedre, men kæmper med at ofre vores egne privilegier.


Rent musikalsk spiller Voelva med musklerne. Hun har selv produceret sangen, der på en bund af tung, vedholdende tromme udpensler dilemmaet igennem 4 minutters intenst djævleridt. “Its a deal with the Devil/ give them give them give them what they want/a deal with the Devil;  Greed´s the curse of life/ more wants more…”


Voelva er en erfaren kunstner. Hun har langt over 1.000 koncerter under bæltet.

Både som mangeårig korsanger for Etta Cameron og som medlem af The Pink Floyd Project.

Som solist i eget navn udgav hun i 1999 singlen Sister Blue og i 2002 albummet ’Disclosure’ og optrådte dengang i både Go’ Morgen Danmark og med egen koncert på bl.a. Vega. Flere numre venter i forlængelse af ’The Curse’, og voelva planlægger hvordan sangene kan få scenisk udtryk. Hun garanterer at det bliver “dramatisk”.
