  • Hyvonen is a Swedish singer, pianist, and songwriter who is both musically and lyrically fearless. There's no gimmickry or artifice in her style, no elfin voice or concept album pomposity--just a woman with clear, proud pipes and a bold pen. On SILENCE IS WILD, Hyvonen largely shelves the honky-tonk style heard on her debut in exchange for a denser, more immersive sound filled out with synths, strings, and choral singing. But her lyrical openness remains intact: "December" deals with abortion, while "Pony" tiptoes around bestial S&M. The funny "Scandinavian Blond" turns the satire on herself.
Professional Reviews
CMJ - "Her voice oscillates from whispered words to powerful cries, all supported by her fertile piano arrangements, ranging from subdued adn echoed to jumpy pop."

Q (Magazine) (p.101) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[R]efreshingly imaginative, sexually upfront and impossible to second guess. Fun and peppy one moment, touchingly tender the next..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.115) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Silence is not an option when Hyvonen is this witty and brazen..."

Clash (magazine) (p.98) - 'Its arrangements, whether sparse or enormous, are always intricately constructed and with a great sense of showmanship."
