She speaks of being transported to other worlds the moment she places her hands on an instrument. She suggests music might be the best language in which to communicate. A little digging into her childhood past reveals a funny little habit of imagining fictional universes in boundless detail. And even as she pursued a career in ballet she did so knowing that it was truly the musical accompaniment that offered her the most intense vehicle for her own expression. So when an injury derailed her schooling at the Danish Royal Ballet Academy, it was only logical that Nanna land Fabricius - aka Oh Land - turned to the music she loved to reignite her creative passion, sending her off on an exciting new career tangent.
In this inventive new segment of The Guest Apartment, Oh Land takes you to the roof of our headquarters for a "picnic style session" that's unlike any we've ever previously encountered. Inspirations from the likes of Bjork, Portishead, and Broadcast seem evident enough, but Nannas skittish, electronic numbers suggest shes using those directional queues to find her own place with her music. Where will it take her? With an American debut slated to drop via Epic Records sometime in the new future, its hard to say. In her own words though she imagines "a meeting place between something that is classic and something that is new and very futuristic". I guess you could call that her very own land...Oh Land. - David Pitz
