“littleuniverses can take you to a whole new world that is beyond your wildest dreams.” – Echoes and Dust
MONTREAL (October 4, 2022) – littleuniverses announces the release of her debut self-titled album on February 10, 2023. The album’s producer, Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Zola Jesus, Anna von Hausswolf, Myrkur), brought littleuniverses’ dark and ethereal, poetic and cinematic dichotomy to life, reflecting the dark folk and dark gentle core, rock, and jazz styles embraced within the album. Arjan Miranda (Black Mountain) and cellist Brent Arnold play on the album.
Like a film with highs, lows, and moments of intensity, it often feels like exploring a lush forest surrounded by trees, rustling leaves, and birdsongs to ultimately create a profound sense of calmness and serenity. The album introspects themes of identity, relationships, struggle, the search for beauty and meaning, love, hope, mysticism, and the passing of time. littleuniverses says, “I approach these topics in my music in a way that is more abstract at times so listeners of any gender can also find a piece of themselves in the music and relate.” The story immerses the listener in each of the songs as if part of the music. It gives a voice to those who have difficulty expressing their feelings and finding comfort along the album’s journey.
- Bird in your hat
- Forever to never again
- Will I be a mother
- Your lake
- Send it away

Praise for littleuniverses
“Music by Littleuniverses is incredibly stirring and compelling. It doesn’t take long to sense the depth of the lyrics she writes”–Lefuturewave
“Littleuniverses has crossover appeal, appealing to both fans of dark contemporary acts like Tori Amos and the alt-indie-pop of Billie Eilish” -The Wild Is Calling
“When we listen to an EP as beautiful as Corners, we can still associate the talent/inspiration equation with a huge touch of genius. The littleuniverses singer managed to combine the best of the new age ambience, connect to pop in a magnificent way and still had time and competence to embrace even elements of folk climates.” –Roadie Music
