Jenny Hval Quotes 1921459

Jenny Hval Quotes 1163173

Jenny Hval Quotes 955956

Jenny Hval Quotes 819973

Jenny Hval Quotes 590590

Everything you do is so personal. In the end, it doesn't matter so much if you write about your own life or not. It's going to be as much artifice when it comes out as a piece of music. Everything is in character in a way. But that's a great thing. — Jenny Hval

Jenny Hval Quotes 576144

When I was growing up, I would try to sing out of key very consciously. I was probably afraid of trying too hard to do something beautiful, and then I just wasn't good enough.

Jenny Hval Quotes 544588

It feels very different to have long, thick, brightly colored hair.
