Thrill Jockey is proud to announce the signing of San Sebastián, Spain-based musician Elena Setién. Her vivid songwriting and nuanced compositions breathe life into allegories, from the mundane to the mythical. Previously known for her work in the Scandinavian experimental duo Little Red Suitcase with Johanna Borchert, Setién’s solo material is direct and adventurous, affecting and engaging.
