girl in red – if i could make it go quiet

Today Norweigan star Marie Ulven, known to the world as girl in red, drops her eagerly anticipated debut album “if i could make it go quiet” to the world. It’s a record that chronicles the very blood, sweat & tears of the 22 year old that went from uploading tracks online only a few years back to an artist with over a billion streams with various sold out world tours across her fanbase now in their millions. Speaking about today’s release, Marie said “‘I’m super stoked for the album to be finally out, and for people to enjoy it and take what they want from it!

The album is entirely self-written by the critically acclaimed girl in red, and co-produced through-out with Matias Tellez. In addition, lead single Serotonin was also co-produced by GRAMMYⓇ Winning producer FINNEAS. You can now watch today’s upload of her brand official video to Serotonin, where Marie’s unadulterated energy is on full display.

Explaining her album, Marie said “if i could make it go quiet is an attempt to learn what it’s like to be human; to deal with the scariest parts of myself; to live with the pain of knowing i’m only flesh and bones; to be angry, broken and unforgiving yet still able to wear my heart on my sleeve; i’m shedding light on the darkest parts of my mind and i’m letting everyone in; if i could make it go quiet is me simply trying to understand what the fuck is going on.”

The full tracklist to if i could make it go quiet is as followed:

  1. Serotonin

  2. Did You Come?

  3. Body And Mind

  4. hornylovesickmess

Some songs taken from the album will feature on her 2022 “make it go quiet” Tour which is sold out across Europe.

Here’s some of the early opinions in the media;

UK – Guardian: “superb upcoming debut album… Whether her theme is desire or depression, Ulven deals in stark, specific honesty. She belongs to a new wave of artists determined to counter empty empowerment anthems with warts-and-all vulnerability.”

UK – Sunday Times Culture: “A streaming sensation for frank, lo-fi indie anthems…Marie Ulven has scaled up her sound on a debut that could barely be bolder. The lyrics are candid about her state of mind and love life, yet still littered with wit. Stroppy rock and glossy pop strengthen her songs but don’t distil the queer icon’s power. The spewed-out Serotonin is already a single of the year. Much here could follow suit.”

UK – The Observer (YSB): “Viciously catchy love song”

UK – The Line of Best Fit: “if i could make it go quiet cements Girl in Red as a dynamic indie pop force…girl in red belongs to the thrilling wave of gen z artists tearing through taboos and demanding their rightful place in the mainstream consciousness.”

UK – The Line of Best Fit: “Ulven’s debut is now taking her to stratospheric new heights”

UK – Clash: “Three years on from her debut EP, ‘if I could make it go quiet’ finds girl in red re-stating her independence, queering pop’s rules to find a space she can call her own. It’s inspiring, and above all else incredibly catchy.”

UK – The Quietus: “Complex and sophisticated, if i could make it go quiet is one of the most enticing new albums I have heard in a long time. I cannot wait to listen to it on repeat. I’ve got to know all the lyrics for when girl in red goes on tour next year, after all.
