The voice of Norwegian keyboard player, producer, composer and singer Susanne Sundfør can be heard on several songs by the group Röyksopp, on M83's latest album and the theme tune for the sci-film Oblivion. Her first ever concert in Hungary will also feature older songs from her discography - tuned to the finely-balanced, delicate and intimate sound of her latest album.Born in 1986, Susanne Sundfør wrote her first, untitled album of piano-based pop songs as a teenager. It was first released in 2007m but she recorded a new, toned-down acoustic version of the album with the titleTake One a year later, though she would find her true sound later when she turned to electronic music and synthesisers. Her 2010 album, The Brothel, was created in this spirit and made her Norway's most successful performer. Her studio albums released since have all topped the charts in her home country. She attracted worldwide attention with the international release of her 2012/2013 album The Silicone Veil, as well as her work with M83 and Röyksopp. Her collaboration with the former came when they worked on the theme tune for the film Oblivion, starring Tom Cruise, while she recorded a cover of the Depeche Mode song Ice Machine with the latter. Both collaborations feature on the latest albums by the two groups, as well as on Sundfør's own 2015 album, Ten Love Songs.
Her most recent album, Music for People in Trouble, was released in the summer of 2017 and inspired by her travels around the world. A more artistic and complex piece of work than her earlier albums, it provides "a mix of innocent romantic vocals and a really industrial, dry sound sound”, featuring a duet with the American singer songwriter John Grant. She also appeared with Grant at the Royal Albert Hall in an orchestral BBC concert in tribute to Scott Walker, where Susanne was the only female star performer.
