I Don't Care if you're Beautiful
A song off my soon-to-be-released EP, this is a... well, it's a nice song:)
Dig Out Your Soul
Silje sings about drowning your sorrows in beer and discovering your soul in a cracked mirror over a sink full of puke:) Backed by a shimble-shamble band, a not-so-well-oiled door and the lopsided clarinetist out of a circus band.
