Agnes Obel: Denmark, “Dorian,” And Deren

Danish musician Agnes Obel is making a brief stopover in the U.S. before returning to Germany to headline the Cologne Music Festival. Her latest album, Aventine, is charting all over Europe in countries like France, Belgium and her home country of Denmark, but she’s also starting to make her mark overseas; NPR premiered her music video for her single “Dorian” in May, which Obel scored to experimental filmmaker Maya Deren’s “In The Very Eye Of Night.” Obel will perform at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC on Aug. 14.
