“Repeated listens unfurl all sorts of wonder”**** Q
“In surpassing her debut, Agnes Obel has confirmed she is in it for the long haul” **** Mojo

Originally from Copenhagen, Agnes Obel has lived in Berlin since 2006, where new album ‘Aventine’ was recorded at her Chalk Wood Studios.Rapturously received by critics here and across Europe, ‘Aventine’ entered the Top 5 album chart in four countries, reaching No.1 in her native Denmark and No.2 in France. The album is the follow-up to Agnes’s 2010 debut ‘Philharmonics’, which sold almost half a million copies.Agnes toured the UK in October 2013 playing sold out shows in Glasgow, Bristol and a magical show at the Union Chapel in London. In its live review, The Times said “Obel cast a magical spell…close your eyes and you could have been transported to mountains, forests or roaring firesides in Winter” while the Financial Times singled out “Dorian’s ‘implicit pop yearning” for special praise and further declared “by the time she performs at the Barbican next April, Obel will have to have got used to being a much bigger star.”
