This is Danish singer-songwriter Oh Land (real name Nanna Øland Fabricius) with “White Nights“. I think she sounds a bit like Bjork in a pixie-ish way. Fantastic song. Cool weird video.
I’m really loving her eponymous album which was probably my favorite album of 2011. And that’s saying something because I have trouble getting full albums to stick anymore. It may be that I’m getting old & less easily impressed or it could be that new music isn’t as good or that the iPod set-up is messing with my head. Maybe there’s just too much music to sort through.
Her album features several really cool songs (check out “Sun of A Gun“, “Wolf and I” and “Turn It Up” (which was featured in a tv commercial)). Last year she toured with & opened for Katy Perry and Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD). By the way, Oh Land turns 27 next week (I only know because I just checked info about her online. It’s not like I’m stalking her or anything.). Happy Birthday, Oh Land. May you sell lots of music and perhaps put up a tent in my backyard.
