Mirel Wagner

“What Love Looks Like” MP3 Stream

Apr 20, 2014

This weekend was Record Store Day—the great yearly tradition that dives us all away from our computers and into actual physical stores to buy actual physical records. One item that you might have missed in the madness was Music Finland’s free compilation, featuring the likes of Jaakko Eino Kalevi, Mirel Wagner, Beastmilk, Satellite Stories, NEØV, and The New Tigers. In case you’re still in the mood for discovery, here’s Wagner’s contribution, the moody folk track, “What Love Looks Like.” It’s amazing the mood that the Sub Pop-signed singer/songwriter can conjure with just her guitar and voice. Close your eyes as you listen and picture moonlight filtering through the Nordic woods.



Premiere: “Hearts On Fire” Video

Apr 18, 2014

Last year, Helen Marnie released a solo album called Crystal World. The electronic album shares a DNA with her main project Ladytron, although Marnie’s solo take is far more darkly ethereal. Check out the video for album cut “Hearts On Fire,” where Marnie explores her feelings while decorated with colored lights, glitter, and veils. You can also revisit her previous video “The Hunter” here.
