If you’re hankering after music that sounds like winter, evoking its crisp, cold days or the stillness of its long nights, then the work of Norwegian singer-songwriter Fay Wildhagen is a perfect match. Chiara Rimella, deputy editor of ‘Konfekt’, drove to a lake just east of Oslo with Wildhagen to talk about how nature helps her to make music.

We hear from founding members Olivia Wilson and Jess Geissendorfer on the potential seasonal bounty of a chilly February.
