It’s 2018, y’all! And while some of you are out here still “playing concerts” and “releasing albums,” Jenny Hval and Håvard Volden are transcending our material plane as Lost Girls. With their debut two-track project, Feeling, out March 2 on Smalltown Supersound, the duo is dissolving theory and structure and all those other things that are just plain old hat.

Forget the death of God and the death of the Author. What year are you from? “This is the death of material!” so says Hval.

Okay, backstory time! Hval and Volden have collaborated for some years. After playing together at loads of live performances with Volden in Hval’s band back in 2012, the two released an album as ”Nude on Sand” in 2015. Now they’ve left that moniker behind — along with all their corporeal manifestations — for their new project, which promises a sound that could never, ever be replicated live. (They really want us to know that.)

For Hval, this marks the first new tunage we’ve heard since 2016’s Blood Bitch, which was one of our favorite albums of 2016.

As of now, you can preorder the EP from Smalltown Supersound and check out a video trailer for the Lost Girls project — followed by its positively transcendent cover art — down below. Careful though, if you aren’t ready to leave your attachment to object reality in 2017, you probably aren’t ready for this either:
