We’re pleased to premiere a track from Oh Land’s upcoming EP, Replanting Family Tree, which will be released September 18. The three-and-a-half minute song is a remix from another excellent artist, Arthur Moon, who will be going on tour with Oh Land later this month. For fans of Sylvan Esso and the more synthy aspects of St. Vincent, it’s a tune ideally heard in headphones or a very good stereo. Lyrically, it’s much more intimate and adult, in a good way, than your typical electro-pop.
From Arthur Moon’s Lora-Faye Åshuvud: “It was such a privilege to get to dig into the magical worlds Oh Land and Thomas Bartlett created on these recordings–I loved pushing them all through the weirdo musical meat grinder that is my brain. Sticking with this metaphor, “Human Error” was definitely one of my favorite sausages to make, spicing it up with my special spice blend of odd time signatures and thick, prickly harmony (if you listen hard, you can hear my voice in there every once in a while, under Oh Land’s).”
From Oh Land’s Nanna Øland Fabricius: “Replanting Family Tree is like the upside down of my album Family Tree. It’s got a very electronic and playful vibe which gives the songs a different meaning. Working with Arthur Moon has been amazing cause she has breathed fresh air into my songs and given them a new sense of optimism with her anarchistic approach to production. New soil, rainwater, sunlight gives an old tree with new roots in my forest.”
Oh Land and Arthur Moon will be on tour beginning next week on September 24 at The Bell House in Brooklyn. Thye’ll be in D.C. at The Miracle Theater September 26 and in Evanston, Illinois’ SPACE on September 27.
