Agnes Obel - Island Of Doom

Created by long-term collaborator and partner Alex Brüel Flagstad, the video perfectly visualises the experience and mystery of Myopia, which can be defined as “the quality of being short-sighted”. Although Obel’s music can often curate a monologue of modern-day dystopian-esque news stories that we are all now subject to, the contents of “Island Of Doom” are much more personal, as she explains: “The song is made up of pitched-down piano and cello pizzicato and vocals, all choirs are pitched down and up… In my experience when someone close to you dies it is simply impossible to comprehend that you can’t ever talk to them or reach them somehow ever again. They are in many ways still alive because in your consciousness nothing has changed, they’re still there with everyone else you know.”
