Weekend Videos: Oh Land – Lean (live with string quartet)
Oh Land is a cracking new experimental electro pop act that peels influences from Björk, The Pierces and a touch of Alex Winston to boot. ‘Sun of a Gun‘ is the most probably the most pop focused of her outputs with a catchy chorus and theatrical production that has become almost a staple to female chorus that sticks to you like glue.
‘Wolf and I‘ takes on a more introspective sound and in truth this its the track that prompted the post. Layered dreamy vocals entrance the listener and casts a Pierces-like spell upon it and ensures a magical listen from start to finish. Not shy of genre boundaries she enlisted fellow Dane Trentemøller to lends himself to an ethereal remix of her track ‘Heavy Eyes‘ creating a deliciously abstract slice of pop techno.
If you need any additional convincing check out the amazing live performance of ‘Lean‘ in a Titanic-esque setting. Have a listen….
