Are you ready to be entranced?
The other day a wondrous surprise arrived via a Nylon Magazine email featuring an artist that I’d never heard of before. I simply clicked play on the video they had posted and when a woman’s voice rang out I found myself wrapped in a trance that barely broke when the song ended. I immideately googled the name on the video, Oh Land, and found that Nanna Øland Fabricius was the voice and the brain behind this beautiful song.
The Oh Land tracks sound as if someone mixed Lykke Li with a more mature woman/musician. Nanna Øland Fabricius describes her music; “I think that Oh Land has a unique landscape all on its own. I strive to make the possibilities endless and to have all the senses collide in to a language on their own.”
“I wanted my new album to strike a balance between the big city and nature,” she explains, “because they’re both pulling me in different directions all the time. I live and grow in the eye of the storm.” – Nanna Øland Fabricius
For the finale, I thought you should all listen to “Sun of a Gun” which incorporates some extremely creative set design as well as song composition.
