In between composing projects, Karijord wrote and recorded We Become Ourselves in 2012, releasing it across Europe and UK in the late Fall of 2012 and early winter 2013. The record was selected as Mojo Magazines record of the month under the category world in November 2012 as well as top 10 records of 2012. Several European tours followed the release of We Become Ourselves. In January 2014 Karijord released Music for Film and Theatre, a largely instrumental compilation of songs that she composed under the years 2009–2013 for film and theatre projects. Her 2017 release, Mother Tongue, was positively reviewed in the Irish Times as showcasing "an artist whose creative expressiveness is in keeping with her instinctive role as a sensible communicator".
Karijord, along with Jon Ekstrand, composed the music for the 2020 documentary film I Am Greta, and the 2022 spy thriller All the Old Knives. In 2022 she composed the soundtrack for the biographical documentary Explorer.
