Linnéa Racine aka Evelinn Trouble
Swiss music prize 2018
Evelinn Trouble, born Linnéa Racine in Zurich in 1989, is a musician with an exceptional voice and an explosive personality. Having toured with Sophie Hunger and provided guest vocals for the rapper Stress in the past, she has long since begun to write for herself – in her own words, “psychedelia in all its forms” – and garnered international acclaim for her last two albums “The Great Big Heavy” and “Arrowhead”. She performs her complex songs with a primal energy, visceral and yet at the same time tender. Too radical for the mainstream, she blasts through the boundaries of the small world that is Swiss pop.
