It takes a special kind of artist to transcend not just genre-pigeonholing, but creative pigeonholing altogether. But when Oh Land, aka Nanna Øland Fabricius, emerged in 2011 with an eponymous debut bursting with unique identity, it became immediately clear that the Danish chanteuse was one of those precious few.
Today she delivers brand new video for forthcoming single ‘Renaissance Girls’.
Merging sharp, cheeky lyrics with the kind of chorus you’ll be humming for weeks: “I can be your darling/ Cooking you dinner and soothing your heart aches/ Having three kids and still remain a virgin/ It’s my version of a renaissance girl,” Oh Land is back, with customary aplomb.
‘Renaissance Girls’ is the new single from Oh Land’s highly-anticipated new album Wish Bone, due out October 7th via Federal Prism, the new label launched by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek. Featuring her distinctive brand of leftfield pop, the album features collaborations with Sitek, as well as additional contributions from Sia, WNDRBRD and Dan Carey, amongst others.
