Make It Go Quiet Tour 2022
Seven years ago, at the age of 15, Marie Ulven, a native of Oslo, made two discoveries: First, after two relationships with boys, she found out she was a lesbian; second, immediately afterward, she felt the desire to describe this change in a song.
Since then, Marie Ulven, who as an artist gave herself the name girl in red, has spent many days and nights sitting in her bedroom composing new songs that often deal with love, passion and sexuality. In such a natural, open-hearted way that overnight millions of people all over the world felt addressed and understood by them.
She was "just a girl who happens to be gay and sings about it because it helps me," Marie Ulven explained in an interview. And yet she has been stylized globally as a new icon of the queer community. For example, the question "Do you listen to girl in red?" on TikTok has long been considered international code for asking someone if they are gay.
The reason for this is undoubtedly the touching songs of the 22-year-old Norwegian, which she initially recorded completely alone in her bedroom and produced herself. And this with such great success that girl in red can be considered in good conscience one of the biggest indie and dream pop sensations of recent years, with many millions of followers on Instagram, TikTok and other platforms.
