Ever since we came across Oh Land we knew we were in for a treat, especially as the first track we came across we an immense Yuksek remix. Signed to Epic Records her album has been causing quite a stir over the pond and for once we couldn’t agree more.
She’s a far cry from the artists that are manufactured from crappy Pop shows – the Danish singer-song-writer has a refreshing air of credibility, combine that with a sassy voice, impeccable song writing and a decent electronic edge – she has the makings of quite a star.
Originally from Denmark who recently relocated to New York to write her self-titled debut. Her upbringing was a tale of the Royal Danish and Royal Swedish Ballet schools coupled with a “circus-like” upbringing courtesy of a family of creative souls. Their unique and individual talents have left deep imprints on how Oh Land experiences and interprets the world around her.
The album gets off to the with best possible start with three stellar electro pop tracks in the form of the epically ethereal and stylish ‘Perfection’, ‘Break The Chain’ which more than winks to the current trend of atmospheric post-dubstep sounds, which were tipping this a possible single, and one of favorites the ‘Sun Of A Gun’ which it’s so catchy and snappy.
The album draws from all the latest flavour-of-month’s including bleepy italo disco found in ‘Voodoo’, carefully crafted shuffling dubstep of ‘Wolf & I’ and the grandeur pop of ‘Human’.
Overall the album draws just enough light and sparkle of pop coupled darker electronic shades and undertones. Dan Carey (The Kills, Franz Ferdinand, Hot Chip) and Dave McCracken (Depeche Mode, Beyoncé, AFI) along with Oh Land have created an album of rich harmonies, beautiful symphonic arrangements over the enchanting voice of Oh Land.
