Agnes Obel's Making Classical Cool

Her stunning second album offering, Aventine

Agnes_1866319b_full_for_exchange

Understated, emotionally charged, powerful. Just some of the words used to describe Agnes Obel’s second album offering, Aventine.

Classically trained pianist and singer Agnes Obel shot to fame in 2010 when her debut album Philharmonics achieved quintruple platinum status in her native Denmark, winning her numerous awards at the Danish equivalent to the Brit awards and earning her Goddess like status across Europe. Now her second album release is set for similar stardom,receiving mass acclaim across the board and truly defining Obel as a star in the making.

The perfect album to accompany you into autumn and winter, Aventine shows Obel taking on both vocal and piano duties, supported by cello, violin, viola and percussion. Emphasis is given to the exquisite musical arrangements and compositions, with vocals that integrate seamlessly. ‘The Curse’ is the first single off the album – a beautiful, string led track that will have you pressing repeat over and over, whilst ‘Words Are Dead’ is both emotional and haunting, a guaranteed hairs standing up track.

Simple and captivating, Aventine is an incredible example of how classical music is slowly integrating into the main stream, teaming beautiful musical compositions and lyrics to astounding effect. The album is out now.

    There's so much music in this world, it's hard to find the artists that make art, but luckily a friend introduced me a track once, and in turn introduced me to this amazing artist. Obel has her own inspiring and unique outlook on music. She creates art, of which you could listen to for hours.
