Kirsten Ludwig

ambient, cinematic, experimental, folk, singer-songwriter

‘We Get It Now’, Kirsten Ludwig’s third release, is an infusion of dream-pop, haunt-folk, and Canadiana; with its low-key atmosphere, thoughtful arrangements, and honest sound guiding the way. With influences like Beach House, Laura Marling, and Sharon Van Etten, Ludwig set out to produce a record – alongside Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Black Mountain, Sleepy Sun) – with strong melodic structures, catchy hooks, and soaring dynamic soundscapes. ‘We Get It Now’ is anchored by themes of loss, grief, fleeting optimism, and residual anger. “I set out to make the best break up record of all time, but instead this record became a symbol of friendship and resilience,” says Ludwig.

“The wispy guitars and Ludwig’s ethereal echoes capture the weightless, disoriented feeling of looking out bleary-eyed at an unchanging landscape while on a long drive.” – Paste Magazine

“A yearning, elegant ballad in which reverb-shrouded electric guitars and patient rhythms set the backdrop for Ludwig’s sighing melodies and wistful lyrics.” – Exclaim!
