Aaaand I’m in love. There is something about those Nordic women. Oh Land is Nanna Øland Fabricius, a Danish ballet dancer turned pop star who now lives in Brooklyn. Her live performance is based around some kind of home made one-woman music-making contraption with balloon video projections. I don’t understand it, but I am adding “See Oh Land in concert” to my to-do list. She and Lykke Li should collaborate. Hear more at her Soundcloud.
Her soundscapes are lavish, crunchy, symphonic, brute and captivated with rhythms that fly apart. Oh Land’s self-titled EP will be available in October via Epic Records, with her US debut album to follow in 2011.
