LINN shares new single “Worth It”

New EP “Femte Dimension” out 19th January

Danish DIY artist LINN returns with the release of her new single “Worth It”. The track comes on the heels of her critically acclaimed single “Okay, Sister” and is the final track to land ahead of her new EP “Femte Dimension”, which is out 19th January.

The off-kilter track is arguably LINN’s most indie-driven song to-date but is still imbued with her inimitably oblique and often unsettling sound. Discordant lo-fi guitars weave around vocal hooks that warp and flex across different dimensions as the track develops. “Worth It” is further proof of LINN’s refusal to follow conventional songwriting tropes, whilst still writing highly emotive and encapsulating songs.

LINN builds this hypnotic soundscape that uses this off-kilter scale and jaunty notes to collide and weave with one another, layered vocal harmonies add to this addictive effect. Alternating with more direct delivery to elongated softer notes sustained. LINN releases this raw release, capturing the power of the vocals but addressing this uneasy atmosphere to work with the lyrics with the ultimate appeal.

With the new release and the contrast from the stunning last single dropped, LINN confirms they can bring variation, emotional sincerity, and a broad influx of influences and genres to create something so worthy of your attention, so fresh and innovative. With “Worth It” those crisp textures surge, playing on experimental efforts and allowing the layers to pull you into the center of the expressive movement.

LINN made her debut in November 2020 with her eclectic EP Happy Metal, which was a consummate introduction to her borderless style showcasing playful and eclectic arrangements that take influence from alternative rock, future R&B and electronic lo-fi. Often accompanied by bizarre sound effects, field recordings, toy instruments, the tracks were all written, produced, and recorded by LINN herself with her then newborn child on her lap. Her music balances the mesmerising and melodic with the idiosyncratic and experimental, with added lyrics that are often based on unpretentious everyday moments conveyed with humor. 

In May 2021, LINN and the band Blood Child went on a Danish tour with the artistic and visual crossover concept “Shower Me In Happy Metal”, where she played her new material publicly for the first time. LINN has since gone on to support Wolf Alice, as well as appearing at a number of festivals, including SPOT festival (DK) and this summer’s Roskilde Festival (DK), which was highlighted with a 5-star review in the Danish publication Undertoner, who called her music “a terrifying, hard-hitting combination of raw rock energy and musical finesse of the highest class”.
