she caused quite a stir a few years back, with her black metal aspirations (let's not start again, folks), and yesterday she released an album of pure scandi folk that's worth a listen if you're into that kind of thing:

she had some shows lined up for this summer, no idea if they'll happen now, but very curious about her live lineup and setlists...

Her first album showed some decent ideas and I kind of liked it. It was like a pop version of Bergtatt. It wasn't great but it had potential. Her second album was just a mess.

She seems a lot more confortable doing this kind of folky sound and I'm happy for her but I'm not interested in this kind of music at all.

I also like this folk sound, she's good at it, though I wonder if dropping the black metal sound has anything to do with the reception she got from the "scene".

I would be very suprised. Regardless of what a portion of the "scene" may think of her, she has 200k+ monthly listeners on Spotify right now. More than enough people like her stuff, and the second album did better than the first.
