Wallgrin

Experimental Pop

Review

Impose Magazine

“Ae’aea” (the video) begins with a thundering waterfall, setting the dramatic tone for the song and its visual counterpart. As Wallgrin’s gorgeous vocals float over the notable, throbbing percussion, she almost floats across the fallen leaves in a thick, green forest, the beautiful foliage – and notable aluminum cape – surrounding her. Her beautiful brown eyes, rimmed in a brilliant blue that matches the vividness of the water, express deep emotion as she examines her reflection in a mirror.

There’s no wondering why it’s considered a siren song.

Biography

Wallgrin is the experimental art-pop solo project of composer, violinist, and vocalist Tegan Wahlgren. With a background in choral singing and Celtic fiddling, Wahlgren has evolved into the mutant, undiscovered bird species she always intended to be. Now, Wallgrin delves into the space between extremes of beauty and dissonance, expressed through layers of strings and exploratory human vocals. Her self-produced recorded material incorporates a variety of eclectic instruments, drum machines, and field recordings, while her live show consists mainly of violin and vocal looping. She has performed at TEDxVancouver, Launch Festival for emerging artists, and was a runner-up in CiTR’s Shindig. Wallgrin is now working on a debut album entitled Bird/Alien, to be released in early 2017.
