Hype is building around Agnes Obel, and it is quite easy to see why. Her voice – though slightly reminiscent of Imogen Heap’s illustrious vocals – holds a sound all its own, as if it is a vibration directly from the earth. This is why we absolutely had to share the music video for her single “Golden Green”.
Bright prisms of light flash to the melody over a serene landscape. Agnes’ ethereal vocals almost guide these figures into a blissful night, while layers of tranquil geometric shapes transform gently. The entire video is computer generated, which adds a mysterious layer to it all for us. A kaleidoscope, creatures out of your dreams, and mandalas aplenty make this video feel just as haunting as Agnes’ voice.
And that’s not an easy feat.
