5.0 out of 5 stars A Tangle Of Nordic Rainbows, 21 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Oh Land (Audio CD)
Oh Land is the nom de guerre of Nanna Oland Fabricious, a singer/songwriter
and producer from Denmark and what a treat her album truly is! There are eleven
tracks in the set and I will admit to having been captivated by each and every one.
Her style might best be described as well-wrought electro-pop and Ms Fabricious
really does understand the meaning of a good tune. The recording is full of them!

Although singing in English she delivers her fayre with a slight Nordic
accent which adds quirky and seductive colour to her vocal performances.
It's a very good voice, mixed well-forward and commanding centre-stage with
easy charm and nimble, unaffected simplicity. A star in the making methinks!

The melodies are strong and memorable; the vocal harmonies crisp, dreamy
and utterly delightful. Jump to 'Lean' for a small dose of heaven! It is a
string-infused composition which allows Ms Fabricious to display the full
extent of her gifts as a singer. She slips and slides up and down the scale
like a nightingale! Her upper register is particularly impressive; clean and
sure and with a lovely warm, ringing tone which sounds entirely natural.
'Wolf & I' (I wasn't there I promise you but appreciate the sentiment!) is
another cracker; the slightly dubby beats supporting a sparkling arrangement
full of shadows and moonbeams! 'Son Of A Gun' has the kind of ridiculously
addictive choruses which lights up the sky and brought a big toothy smile
to my face. So too the incandescently confident 'White Nights', which is
almost too ebullient for its own good. Pop music doesn't get much better!
The curious final confection 'Rainbow', however, made my tail wag as top
track. Against a dangerously almost-discordant percussive backdrop we witness
an artist with a singularly robust musical vision shining like a small sun!

Utterly tantalizing from top to tail. An album which grows in stature with each listen.

Highly Recommended.
