”If I Could Make It Go Quiet,” the debut studio album by Norwegian musician Girl in Red, was independently released on 30 April 2021 through AWAL and her own World in Red label. Initially slated for release in October 2020, the album experienced delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The project, primarily produced by Girl in Red herself in collaboration with Matias Tellez, also features additional production from Finneas O’Connell.

Sonically, the album represents a more ambitious, mature, and developed evolution of Girl in Red’s previous bedroom pop and indie rock style, as showcased in the EPs “Chapter 1” (2018) and “Chapter 2” (2019). The singer describes the album as an “emotional recap” of 2020, delving into her personal mental health experiences and exploring various facets of love.

Critically acclaimed, “If I Could Make It Go Quiet” received positive reviews for its vocal performance, songwriting, lyrical content, production, and visual style.

In terms of background and release, the album faced delays due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite continuous teases and hints about “World in Red,” the planned release in October 2020 was disrupted. Singles like “Midnight Love,” “Rue,” and “Serotonin” paved the way for the album’s eventual release. The official album cover is a painting by Norwegian artist Fredrik Wiig Sørensen.

“Apartment 402” from the album found a place on the FIFA 22 soundtrack.

The record’s production involved collaboration with Matias Tellez, marking Girl in Red’s first time working with a record producer other than herself. The singles “Rue” and “Serotonin” were inspired by the fictional character Rue from the TV series “Euphoria.” “Serotonin” also saw additional production from Finneas O’Connell. The song explores Girl in Red’s decade-long struggle with intrusive thoughts.

Sophie Walker, in an interview with Girl in Red, described the album as a “very ambitious” emotional recap of the past year. The artist expressed that the album includes elements of indie pop, indie rock, pop, synth-pop, R&B, new wave, rap, and piano balladry.
