by Oh Land
Released: Mar 2011
Danish darling Nanna Oland Fabricius is like half fembot, half hippie chick. Programmed to write, sing and play nearly every instrument on her debut, the blonde bombshell utilizes sleek synths, glockenspiel and drum machines as shiny accessories to lure you into her electro-pop wonder world. In reality, Oh Land is quite poignant; Fabricius' crystal coos glide atop heavy beats that are sometimes trip-hop dark, sometimes disco giddy. In "Break the Chain" she opens up about a dance career ended by injury; elsewhere her flower-power side shines through with talk of moons, dreams and white nights.
