Primavera Sound Barcelona

CCCB - Barcelona


She’s the type that says let’s meet and… means it. No lame excuses. In half an hour, Christina Rosenvinge is sitting with you in a café discussing whether Souvenir sounds like Prefab Sprout or not. Or asking you why Easy Girl is your favourite pick of all her songs. Or describing the book of lyrics (and not only lyrics) that she is about to publish. Or wondering if winning the National Prize of Contemporary Music 2018 is like winning the lottery without buying a ticket. Or maybe she did buy a ticket, for every step of her thirty-year career. Well it’s neither of these. It isn’t a miracle prize fallen from the sky nor is it a sought-after prize. It’s the apex of a flawless career. A way to understand musical creation like a mirror that tells the truth; to decline female rock. And now it’s the blond woman from Un hombre rubios’ turn to ask us all to meet her at the Raval on Sunday.
