Marie Ulven, also known as Girl in Red, was born in Horten, Norway, on February 16, 1999. Her journey, which began with her teaching herself to play the piano and guitar in her bedroom, has now reached millions of people. Marie has revealed that she began playing music at the age of 13 when she purchased her first instrument, and that she was “the worst guitarist ever” at the time. She claims, however, that she has resolved this over time.
Marie’s songs are inspired by her own life experiences. She shows her ability to blend joyful, relaxed music with insightful and profound words about mental health, sexuality, and other youth insecurities in songs like Summer depression and Girls. Listening to her music is like hearing a queer’s diary.
“The important thing is that when you meet someone and like them, your criteria should not be the other person’s gender. Because that doesn’t mean anything. The important thing is to be happy with that person. ”
“we fall in love in october” is a lovely song about a couple’s love. While listening to the song, you can feel the intense feelings they are experiencing and imagine the love they are experiencing in your mind’s eye. She claims that this song is a modern version of an old song, and that she chose to share it because autumn is her favorite season for romantic nostalgia.
Girl in Red sings about her love for her best friend Hannah in this song, but it is unrequited. In an interview, she explains: “It’s about me falling in love with my straight best friend and how I just really wanted to see her that summer, but she had a boyfriend, and I didn’t see her once and was so fucking sad,” she says.
“dead girl in the pool” is a song that I really like. I like how she sings about the bad things she’s been through and the deep feelings she needs to express in a happy song. For me, it’s about making decisions that have an irreversible impact on who you are or how you feel as a human. You’ve transformed into a new human, leaving the old one dead in the pool. The’morning after’ visuals often relate to choices and events that happened the night before, and a pool may somehow represent such a leap of faith or shit.
The lyrics describe a relationship in which her mental health issues have complicated things for her husband, causing the relationship to suffer, similar to the dynamic between Rue and Jules in Euphoria. Despite her difficulties, she expresses a strong desire to save the relationship during song.
