BBC Review
There has always been an element of darkness in Ane Bruns music It may never be overbearing but it has been everpresent nevertheless On her fifth fulllength release It All Starts With One things are no different and we find a record as compact and focused as this Norwegian has ever produced There can be little argument that it also represents her best too

The darkness is one which sits there shouldertoshoulder with an equally inherent coldness And it is this coldness which comes across in the physical distance between the albums component parts It is almost as though many of the songs were recorded with instruments in different distant corners of a spacious church hall thus giving those mournful words a partner

A noticeable change from 2008s Changing of the Seasons can be heard in the orchestral touches found throughout Though the lyrics and Bruns voice form a firm base these nuances take the record towards something much greater than its predecessor The strings add depth to the arrangements but its the percussive embellishments which set the pace being used to superb effect in the galloping One and likewise in the painful lament The Light From One They may be pushed to the margins of the mix and diminutive in nature but as well as establishing the tempo they are also tonesetters reinforcing a range of expressed emotions

Having released an entire record of duets six years ago it is no surprise that they are plentiful here too Brun combines with Jos Gonzlez for the dark brooding and cinematic Worship where restfulness somehow feels like a positive perfectly matching the albums overall feel That is directly followed by the most buoyant passage one of very few in Do You Remember as Swedish folksisters First Aid Kit provide a suitable foil beneath tribal drumming and other peripheral delicacies

Bruns back catalogue is one which grows larger and even stronger with It All Starts With One and she has managed to create her finest record yet It is one which doesnt so much shine but glimmer with subtle brilliance all the way through Luke Slater

Ane Brun is from Norway but is pretty much an honourary Swede having lived in Stockholm for the past decade. Her fourth album It All Starts With One could well be a major breakthrough for her coming as it does on the back of tours with the likes of Peter Gabriel and Ani DiFranco. Brun’s sound has developed from her original folk and blues influences with more orchestration present and on the single Do You Remember a frantic burst of tribal percussion. Yet it remains Brun’s voice that’s the focus a marvellously clear sometimes tremulous instrument capable of transmitting so much emotion with a single syllable. This is a blissfully gorgeous album – one that showcases Ane Brun as being at the forefront of the new wave of Scandinavian pop music.
