Danish popstress Oh Land has returned triumphantly today with a brand new single, ‘Head Up High’ (apt). It’s the first single to be taken from her next album ‘Earth Sick’, which comes out on November 10th. Oh Land wrote, produced and recorded the album all on her lonesome via a crowd funding campaign on PledgeMusic. (and you can still donate – help a girl out)
The song premiered today over on SoundVenue, and you can listen to it below.
It’s an up-tempo electropop (yay, and yay!) track with a hugely uplifting chorus and an even bigger post-chorus. It turns out that Head Up High is more “HIGHER, HIGHER, HIIIYYYYAAAAAA”. And that’s precisely what you’ll be singing to yourself after only one listen.
Also listen out for the electro-rave-up that is the middle eight. And the delightfully ECSTATIC final minute or so.
This one’s a lark and a half;
