Wikipedia

  1. Audrey

    Audrey () is an English feminine given name. It is the Anglo-Norman form of the Anglo-Saxon name Æðelþryð, composed of the elements æðel "noble" and þryð "strength". The Anglo-Norman form of the name was applied to Saint Audrey (d. 679), also known by the historical form of her name as Saint Æthelthryth. The same name also survived into the modern period in its Anglo-Saxon form, as Etheldred, e.g. Etheldred Benett (1776–1845). In the 17th century, the name of Saint Audrey gave rise to the adjective tawdry "cheap and pretentious; cheaply adorned". The lace necklaces sold to pilgrims to Saint Audrey fell out of fashion in the 17th century, and so tawdry was reinterpreted as meaning cheap or vulgar. As a consequence, use of the name declined, but it was revived in the 19th century. Popularity of the name in the United States peaked in the interbellum period, but it fell below rank 100 in popularity by 1940 and was not frequently given in the later half of the 20th century; Audrey was the 173rd most common name for females in the United States in the 1990 census. Its popularity has again been on the rise since the 2000s, reaching rank 100 in 2002 and rank 41 in 2012. It was also ranked in the top 100 most common names for girls in France, Belgium, and Canada in the 2000s.

  1. Audrey

    Swedish four-piece Audrey formed in 2002 in Henån, Sweden. The band first formed in a run-down music house that was going to be demolished during their time there. According to the band there were mice running on the floor and the pipes were frozen. In this harsh environment they started playing together. After Rebecka Kristiansson and Victoria Skoglund graduated from high school they decided to move to Gothenburg. Anna and Emelie followed shortly and Gothenburg opened up some new opportunities for them, the city providing a larger scene and audience. In Gothenburg they came in contact with some other musicians that helped them record a demo in the studio of an artist's collective in the summer of 2003. The demo helped them get more live shows in Sweden. Later they recorded an EP in Gothenburg, that would set them on the path to many tours, mostly in Germany. A record company wanted to release their EP and they performed their first show in Germany in Hamburg. In 2005, they began recording their debut album Visible Forms. On this album they took in some outside inspiration from Paul Bothén. He had produced other artists like Kristofer Åström and The Bear Quartet. Visible Forms was recorded at Element Studios in Gårda, Gothenburg. They held the release party at Haga Teatern in Gothenburg in May 2006. It was released on A Tenderversion Recording, a label started by Martin Lundmark.
