striking success in her home country of Denmark with her debut is all the more remarkable given how understated Philharmonics is as a listen, a seemingly straightforward piano/vocal album that isn't. Combining a strong ear for immediate appeal -- Obel's deep singing voice is lovely and her ear for a calm hook is crucial -- with a feeling of just-unsettled-enough unease is key. Part of it lies in Obel's ear for vocal arrangements; hearing her own overdubbed harmonies showcases her talents further, both as performer and producer. But there's something that's not trying to be straightforward here. There's an elegant, slipping darkness that creeps in around the corners, like something is being hidden in plain sight.
This review is spot on imo.
Love her Aventine album, Citizen of Glass is excellent also.
I just pre ordered her release not due out till February 21,2020.
Needless to say , I'm a fan.
She will be on tour with Dead Can Dance.
She is coming to Chicago Theatre. Oh Yea!
I really like all of her stuff and look forward to her next release.
I've never been opposed to pop - it always boils down to me is it good to my ear.
I like some pop don't like some pop - like some classical don't like some classical.
FWIW I like Agnes Obel.
This was the first song from her I heard - liked it and then checked out more.
At first I was not sure what to think but after repeated listens the subtle qualities come out. Frankly she is one of my favorite artists of recent years.
You also might like Nadia Reid , her Preservation LP is wonderful
