“do you listen to girl in red ?” 👀

The 22-year-old unpacks her debut album, “if i could make it go quiet.”

Across more than 500 pages,Concrete Oslohighlights the capital city’s reinforced concrete buildings built between the 1940s to the 1980s. Marie became interested in brutalism last year, that “rough, concrete-y, rocky architecture I just really vibe with.” Though she tells

Teen Voguethatif i could make it go quietmaybe wasn’t directly influenced by the concept of harsh, solid concrete design, it’s notnotinfluenced by that. “Getting inspired by things like architecture and furniture design… I think this is all a part of me growing as a person. All this has definitely fed into the album in a way, you know what I mean?”

Plus, girl in red has a way with words that can seem, well, brutal. While she can make her voice sound airy and light, her sweet spot is a sort of blunt roughness that on the album manifests in spoken word, rap-inspired cadences, with lyrics that spit and shock. “I’m not upset, I’m f*cking pissed,” she daggers on “Did You Come?" And on “hornylovesickness,” she plaintively admits, “I treated you like trash, and you deserve more than that.”

Jonathan KiseJonathan KiseMarie, 22, grew up in Horten, a port town of nearly 27,000 people that’s a little over an hour’s drive from Oslo. As a kid, her bedroom was covered inThe SimpsonsandSpongebob Squarepantsposters, before she graduated to the vinyl records that adorned her walls. Her music found an invested fanbase when she was in high school, and she went on to

study songwriting and productionat Westerdals Oslo School of Arts, Communication and Technology. But soon, the balance between her budding career and her schooling became difficult to find; she dropped out in 2019 to build girl in red on her own terms.

After consistently releasing hits like “we fell in love in october” and “i wanna be your girlfriend” since 2018, she finally set out to make a full album. She found the process different, more difficult and intense. With singles, you can create on bursts of inspiration alone — with an album, it’s a long game. “I had to work on songs that I really didn't want to work on,” Marie says. “I was just like, ‘I've been working on this for so long. I'm not inspired right now at all.’”

She recorded the album in the picturesque city of Bergen with producerMatias Tellez, which is where she spent the majority of 2020. The distance from both home and touring travel seems to have allowed her to capture feelings from both, whether it’s a lonely New York City hotel room or her Oslo apartment.

“Apartment 402” captures the latter. It’s a gut-punch of a song, a complex world of experiences and emotions distilled down to her bedroom. The home is a center for her, a place where the best and worst moments of life are lived. It’s why she’s concerned with creating safe feelings for herself, in the form of the instruments, books, and knick-knacks that decorate her space. “It’s been a place I've hated and it's been a place I've loved, and it's been a place where I've been able to reflect on everything that's been happening mentally and in my life,” she says. It’s the place where you lay on the floor and aren’t sure you can get up. The place where light can come in too, through the cracks in the wall. “I could die here and nobody would know,” the lyrics go. “I've been through hell, but I’m on my way out.”
