Agnes Obel

24 Mar


The piano is lilting, the voice sweet and contemplative, the mood soothing like a pool of gold water in the sweltering sun. Singer-songwriter Agnes Obel is from Copenhagen but lives in Berlin. The songs on her soon to be released Philharmonics (April 12 on [PIAS America]) are delicate yet striking little clouds of beauty all centered around Ms. Obel’s gorgeous voice. There are echoes of Joanna Newsom and a young and tender Kate Bush yet she possesses a singular natural vocal beauty of her own.
