Let's just get this out of the way first: I am really kind of tired of every (I mean EVERY) music blogging/loving boy telling me how hot he thinks Oh Land is. I mean ok, she is basically a 6'0+ tall, pin thin, blue eyed Danish supermodel - real name Nanna - I get that. For me, it's actually a bit off-putting (I guess I find Lily Allen types more relatable to my average midwest-raised self), and on top of that it doesn't even matter, because Oh Land is more stunning artistically than she is merely stunning visually. I managed to catch her perform twice during CMJ which was definitely a treat, she brings her own light box and balloons but tends to be so mesmerizing that you don't even need the distraction.
Musically, if you're into the overall vibe of recent power-pop-girls with a side of electro in the vein of La Roux, Lykke Li, and Little Boots, Oh Land is right up your alley. Tracks like "Son of a Gun" offer up sugar beats with a killer hook, while tracks like Perfection feel like a perfect electronic comedown from the rush.
Oh Land's US debut is due out in 2011 on Epic Records.
