Jenny Hval

Jenny Hval (b. 1980) is a  musician, sound artist and writer. She has released two albums as Rockettothesky, and several under her own name, most notably Apocalypse Girl (2015) and Blood Bitch (2016). The EP The Long Sleep was released to great acclaim in 2018.

Hval made her literary debut with the novel The Pearl Brewery in 2009, and followed up with Sings with Her Eyes in 2012, and then Girls against God in 2018. 2018 also saw the publication in English of her first novel under the title Paradise Rot (Verso Books).

“As intriguing and impressive a novelist as she is a musician, Hval is a master of quiet horror and wonder.”
– Chris Kraus, author of I Love Dick
