See the Other Worldly - Official Video for Agnes Obel's "Golden Green" Directed By Jonas Bjerre




















As  directed by visual artist Jonas Bjerre (who also fronts the Danish Alt/ Rock band MEW) Agnes Obel's video for her single Golden Green from the upcoming album Citizen Of Glass is a mesmerizing other worldly vision. Agnes Obel's evocative singing with her vocal chords resonating more like an instrument than a vehicle for speech pitches and stretches the words into amazing places making the lyrics almost sound like another language. This style only draws you in more to decipher the poetry.

Bjerre's fantastical imagining feels equally alien. You see what appears to be creatures made of light and alien worlds. Haunting yet gentle beings with almost mouse like heads. If this was a trailer for a movie, this is a movie I would WANT to see. Of the project Bjerre said,

"I was honored to take on the task of making a video for this beautiful song. The bells that emphasize the rhythm through the song, for some reason they made me think of blinking lights, and glass- glass being a recurring theme in Agnes's new songs. As she told me more about the song, I stared having ideas for some kind of internal world, maybe a world inside someone's head, where various thoughts and feelings are in opposition, depicted as animated versions of Agnes struggling to find harmony."


Golden Green is available to stream with pre-orders of Citizen Of Glass which I reviewed here out October 21st. The new album is available as a Digital Download, CD with Lyric Booklet and on 180G black Vinyl with a download code in a gatefold sleeve. Pre-order the album from www.agnesobel.com

Agnes Obel will tour North America in 2017.



Golden Green
by Agnes Obel


All I have or should
want to be but never could
it’s coming at, it’s coming at, it’s coming at my heart
To spoil my soul with fire

All my eyes can see is
born out of your imagery
it’s coming at, it’s coming at, it’s coming at my heart
To scorch the earth with fire

tell me who you really love
tell me who you really love
tell me who you really love

Who are you to take over my mind
with your eyes on me
All for you I am climbing the sky
of golden green

Angel green and blue
I’m gonna leave my mind with you
It’s coming at, it’s coming at, it’s coming at my heart
I know, I see, I wanna be just free
I know, it craves, it’s running through my veins
To spoil my soul with fire

tell me who you really love
tell me who you really love
Who are you to take over my mind
with your eyes on me

All for you I am climbing the sky
of golden green

Green
Green
Green

  1. Getting ex back after a breakup. Am Maria 21 from England,my boyfriend of a year just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.This is his E-mail: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com or Add him up on Whats-app: +2348071622464,you can also visit his website:http://unityspelltemple.yolasite.com .

  3. The Best Christian Worship Songs are incredibly lovely and honest. You can without much of a stretch lose all sense of direction in and identify with a great deal of what is communicated in these melodies. http://punjabimp3hits.com/videos/rab-sukh-rakhe-by-deep-grewal-mp3-download/
