Song of the Day: “Sun of A Gun” by Oh Land

Today’s song is “Sun of a Gun” by Oh Land. Last month the Brooklyn-via-Copenhagen artist played several sets at the NYC’s CMJ music marathon. This song is off her self-titled EP. Oh Land has not only an infectious sound, this video explores imaginary landscapes, including what appears to be a snow-blanketed tundra covered with spheres of light. Video director thirtytwo (Blur, Elbow, Franz Ferdinand, and Arctic Monkeys) pays homage to Oh Land’s history as a ballet dancer by meshing modern and classic choreography against the backdrop of contrasting the light and dark imagery.

“I want my music to feel like 2050 meets something really classic, like meeting a stranger that feels as familiar as an old friend,” says Oh Land.
