Whoo Is Oh Land?

-------


A former ballerina with a funny name may soon be the fashion set’s new favorite music act. Either way, expect to hear more about Danish electro-pop artist Oh Land (pictured) in coming months. Sony’s Epic Records is putting out her EP in September and her debut album in early 2011, and Missoni has gotten on board early, selecting Oh Land (née Nanna Øland Fabricius) as a face for M Missoni and as the evening’s entertainment for its summer party last night at Le Bain. Maryna Linchuk, Ann Dexter-Jones, and Byrdie Bell were all on hand to give a listen.

Oh Land has only been in New York since January, and writes and performs (solo, using drum machine and synthesizer) from a very specific place: “This land where big city and skyscrapers and great nature and mountains and valleys come together—my little musical church,” she explained post-performance. It doesn’t hurt, of course, that the keeper of that church is a total stunner.

M Missoni had dressed her in a bat-winged tunic that gave her freedom to sway and ripple during her set. “I love what I’m wearing right now and I feel really comfortable in it,” Oh Land said, flapping her arms. “Like a big owl.”

    The woman is beautiful and the colors of the tunic she is wearing have fallen very well. Combined with the color of their skin and hair, but judging by the hand resting on one side of her waist, a belt would have been spectacular to define the forms of her that seem to be perfect. Even so, she would have continued comfortable!

    I found more pictures of Oh Land on a clothing site she seems to have modeled for. She is gorgeous!! That fact that her music is great makes it that much better.
    She is in the Fall/Winter 09 look book on this site http://cream-nyc.com/

    Her music is so catchy! I’ve had her song “White Nights” in my head for days. I downloaded her 4-song EP on iTunes recently, and can’t stop listening to it. This is also a pretty cool remix of “White Nights:” http://soundcloud.com/ohland/white-nights-twin-shadow
