Oh Land: Nordic Beauty

Oh Land, 'The Wolf And I' by nmemagazine

At first glance, you might think this is just another supermodel or actress turned pop star. However, as you soak up her original, yet poppy sound, you quickly discover that Nanna Oland Fabriciu is much more than that.

The Danish songstress records under the moniker Oh Land - a twist on her middle name, and has already won over the likes of Pharrell Williams and Rihanna. The Crown Prince of Denmark noticed her - and a performance at South by Southwest in 2009 prompted Epic Records to sign her.

Oh Land's eponymous sophomore album (which includes the track above, "Wolf & I") is produced by Depeche Mode collaborator Dave McCracken and set for release in April.
