New Track: Oh Land – “Head Up High”

Electro-pop singer-songwriter & producer extraordinaire Nanna Øland Fabricius, better known as Oh Land, today announces her fourth studio album, Earth Sick – set for release November 11th via her own independent imprint, Tusk or Tooth, in collaboration with Kobalt Label Services! Immersed in her signature soundscape of lush vocals, rich string arrangements & infectious melodies, the album is a hybrid of masterfully woven symphonic & electronic sounds, and marks a full-circle return to the artist’s bedroom production style.

Earth Sick first single “Head Up High,” featuring bouncing synth rhythms & infectious, hook-laden vocals, was written for a friend going through a tough time in her life as encouragement to, quite literally, keep her head up high. Nearly forgotten about by Nanna, the same friend reminded her a year later whilst deep in the throes of recording Earth Sick. The song was finished almost instantly & added to the album.

Frustrated by the struggle to keep her head above the waves and hold onto a sense of idealism despite the complexities of life, Oh Land grasped the struggle as the inspiration for her lyrical exploration on Earth Sick. Anchored by melancholic anthem “Machine,” which opens the album with delicate yet industrial textures, tracks “Little Things” and “Earth Sick” continue the existential lyrical journey combined with the singer’s love for orchestral arrangements.

Oh Land began her career rather unconventionally following a ten-year budding career in ballet, which was ended abruptly by an injury. Searching for a new way to incorporate music into her life, she began recording in her bedroom and discovered an early knack for production. In 2008, she released her debut album Fauna to much critical acclaim, and has spent the better part of the past four years supporting her following releases, Oh Land Wish Bone, and supporting artists including Katy Perry & Sia on the road.

Be sure to catch her when she plays New York City’s Bowery Ballroom on October 21st during CMJ- marking her first NYC show in a year!

Listen: Kelly Sweet – “In The Air Tonight” (Phil Collins Cover)

artworks-000067772664-ogbq7z-t500x500
 
Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Kelly Sweet has recorded a fantastic remake of the Phil Collins classic “In The Air Tonight”.
 

The track is currently featured in the promo adverts for an upcoming J.J. Abrams-produced NBC TV show called “Believe”.

Kelly Sweet’s music idles comfortably between the quirkiness of Sia, the dreaminess of School Of Seven Bells, the innocence of Lykke Li, and the dance-ready energy of Metric.

NEW: Sia

"She is one of the most exciting artists around today!!!" - Perez Hilton

Monkey Puzzle/Jive Records will release Sia’s new album, We Are Born, on June 8. It’s the follow-up to her 2007 smash, Some People Have Real Problems (wow, time flies, right?). We Are Born features contributions from The Strokes guitarist Nick Valensi and Inara George from The Bird and the Bee.

The first single “Clap Your Hands,” which will be released May 25, is a deliriously happy burst of good times and a call to the dance floor wherever you are. The album is replete with future dance classics including “The Fight” and “You’ve Changed.” The haunting signature Sia ballads are also present.

Sia’s Grammy nominated inimitable sound and spirit have captured everyone’s imagination, including Christina Aguilera who recently asked her to work on her forthcoming album. We Are Born is Sia’s invitation to her next adventure. Don’t miss the excitement!

Guess what? You can listen to six songs from the album at SiaMusic.net NOW!
