Birkenes grew up in rural Grimstad, Norway, the daughter of a shipbuilder and secretary. In her youth she performed in town plays and musical events, as well as church choirs and retirement homes. At age 18 she moved to London to study drama while waitressing to make ends meet.

After signing to independent label Neon Gold, Birkenes released her first single "Rescue Song" in 2010. The Guardian compared her sound at the time to Lykke Li, Robyn, and Annie. Later that year she put out her first EP entitled "Angel EP." Birkenes grew in popularity with her 2011 cover of Arcade Fire's "The Suburbs." She often collaborates with Los Angeles producer Tim Anderson, who was instrumental in creating her debut album, Pocketknife. The record was released on Harvest Records on March 25, 2014.
