Meet Oh Land, the most intriguing alt/folk/indie/electro/however-the-fuck-you’d-like-to-label-this artist you’re going to hear about this year.
Oh Land, born Nanna Ã˜land Fabricius, grew up “with an opera singer for a mother, a theater organist for a father and BjÃ¶rk‘s Homogenic on constant rotation” according to her MySpace. Points abound already, no?
Following the homeland success of her 2008 debut album, Fauna, the gorgeous (see above; admire cheek bones) ballerina-turned-musician made a move to Brooklyn in 2010 to take her ambitions to the next level.
Combining the quirky indie darling delivery of acts like Ã‰milie Simon and Kimbra, the aching wanderlust of Bat For Lashes and Feist, the enchanted oddity of such legends as Kate Bush and BjÃ¶rk, and the gadget giddiness of Imogen Heap, Oh Land’s music sparkles with colorful influences from all over the musical spectrum, refusing to take root into just one sound.
On October 19, Oh Land will be releasing her debut major label EP. For your entertainment, MuuMuse is proud to be able to share two tracks from the set: “Sun Of A Gun,” and the “Sun Of A Gun (Ian Pooley Remix),” which breathes some pulsating new life into the original thanks to a gool ol’ disco bass line. You know how we do here at the MuuMuse.
