About Agnes Obel: Born in Copenhagen and currently based in Berlin, Agnes’ sparse chamber folk has been lauded by critics worldwide. After building substantial word-of-mouth praise across Europe and the U.S., Philharmonics was released worldwide on Play It Again Sam and [PIAS] America. The album was hailed by critics who compared Agnes to the likes of PJ Harvey, Joanna Newsom, and Roy Orbison.
“Obel’s music is as sparse as the snow-swept Scandinavian backcountry, and mostly scored for piano, voice and an occasional cello or harp. Yet it brims with a barely concealed passion that has helped make her quiet riot-in-the-heart album a huge European seller.” – Time Magazine
“It’s a rarity: a new album that…is great from beginning to end.”– KCRW
“…a stark, minimalist palette reminiscent of Cat Power and Joanna Newsom.” – Details
