Click + Listen #54 : MR LITTLE JEANS

From Norway, now in Los Angeles, US

Mr. Little Jeans - Runaway (official video)

"Mr. Little Jeans" actually is not a man. She is Monica Birkenes. All about her biography is here.
I discovered her quite randomly on Youtube with her song "Rescue Song" remixed by RAC (=RemixArtistCollective). The original song is great as well, available on Spotify or Deezer.

I found out that it's on the soundtrack of the 2012 comedy-drama film "Celeste and Jess Forever".

There's a little similarity of Chairlift in her songs, don't you think ? I like her voice and songs.

Mr. Little Jeans - Suburbs (Arcade Fire cover)
There was an unofficial video made by the High5Collective of the song "Suburbs" with her soothing cover, which obviously attracted attention online in 2011.

She also sings "Back to the Start", part of the soundtrack of the 2013 movie "Iron Man 3 : Heroes Fall", but among the exclusive tracks by independant bands, "Iron Man 3 : Heroes Fall – Music Inspired by the Motion Picture".
