Norway’s Rebekka Karijord releases a video for the exhuisitely beautiful song “Oh Brother” from her ‘We Become Ourselves’ LP. The instrumentation is spare and haunting framed by simple piano motifs and the tune builds intensity with the addition of a small male chorus late in the song. Also, check out another of her recent singles, “Use My Body While It’s Still Young”.
