girl in red is the alias of 20 year-old Norwegian musician Marie Ulven. She launched the project in 2017 and quickly built a devoted online fan base through a string of heartfelt bedroom pop songs that lyrically tackle the excitement and anxiety around teenage queer love. She's showing no signs of slowing down in 2019 — this month she released her highly-anticipated EP chapter 2 on September 6th and embarked on her first extensive North American headlining tour. Shared in anticipation of her sold-out show at the Crocodile on September 23rd, her exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World kicks off with "i'll die anyway." — one of her numerous infectious singles from 2019 — and then segues into an array of dreamy, emotional, melancholic indie pop that contains some of her favorite songs both new and old alongside artists that have influenced her own unique and passionate sound.
