‘VARGHONAN’ available on VIMEO & YOUTUBE


Solen står högre nu, var dag kom du och stanna. Hör vågor så blå, djup längtan ner, ner. Sinnen så röda, skär mina tankar i eld. Solen står högre nu högre nu, möt stjärnornas stjäl. Djup, glödande het, slår hon ut sin spirande kärlek. Hör, ylande, ropande varghona, ah ah ah! Ah, ah, hör mitt rop! Sjung min sång en gång till. Känn mitt blod, tag mina ben. Ah, aha ah ah! Ah ah ah! Ah ah ah! Ah ah ah! Ah ah ah! Sophie Dunér 1992

‘A weirded up Anita O’Day’


Music Web International

“Dunér is a high-octane performer who thrives on visceral contrasts, rhythmic changes, and simmering intensity. She is a stylistic omnivore, taking elements from musical arenas that interest her but fashioning them to her own idiosyncrasies and sensibility. Her startling vocalese on Gossip with multi-tracking involves some virile playing from the cellist too; a track that put me in mind of a kind of weirded-up Anita O’Day.”

– Jonathan Woolf, Music Web International
