Her electronic, spherical pop songs have their roots in classical music and score music, which she combines with modern productions, sound design and songwriting. Influences in a range from Steve Reich to Niki and the Dove bring to life accessible yet complex songs, fragile yet powerful, dreamy yet danceable. 808 tom fills, originally sounds from the techno culture, suddenly feel like pizzicato strings. The arrangement of the many synth layers generates the impact of a classical orchestra. In this way, Queen Alaskas music is art and pop at the same time.
The name Queen Alaska associates with the width, beauty and clarity of a magnificent, majestic landscape. Its bright colours and reflections of mountains in a deep lake convey the impression of inner peace and unwavering strength at the same time. The northern lights are a miracle that makes you feel closer to the universe than to earth. Queen Alaska sits enthroned above the everyday world and personifies these sensual associations.
