Agnes Obel - The Curse


I was recommended both on Twitter and in person at End of the Road to listen to Agnes Obel by somebody with impeccable taste (twitter user @bandswithiphone), I took heed of that advice this week with the Berlin based Dane's latest track "The Curse", the first taken from her forthcoming LP Aventine.

The track instantly mesmerizes, a dark yet seductive melody is stark and magical with little more than twinkling piano and haunting string arrangements combining with Agnes' fragile, emotive vocal. The result is devastatingly beautiful and poignant - hearts go a flutter.

Aventine is released via PIAS on September 30th and you can order it on a variety of packages from Agnes' own store here.
