After a two-year break from the music industry, Girl in Red has released her fourth album If I Could Make It Go Quiet. Alternative indie artist Marie Ulven Ringheim has been creating music since 2016 and first released an EP titled Oss. If I Could Make It Go Quiet was released independently through AWAL and her own World in Red label on April 30, after being delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This 11 song album made its debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with a performance of the first song on the album “Serotonin.” The album got a spot as a Rolling Stone Artist You Need to Know, where she spoke about “Serotonin.”

Girl in Red told Rolling Stone magazine, “I’ve never talked about my mental health like that. I’m talking about worrying that my therapist hates me. I stopped answering my therapist because I was just like, ‘You don’t want to talk to me’.”

In a deep discussion about her mental health and relationship experience, If I Could Make It Go Quiet is encouraging young women to open up about their emotions and mental health.

The 22-year-old has chosen not to highlight her desire to rip the roof off venues, but a desire for peace of mind. Girl in Red’s long-awaited full-length debut is certainly loud, with notes of pop-punk and busy electronics. And this album’s ambition seems to ultimately act in the service of some longed-for internal quietude.
