Mirel Wagner - The Road
Stereogum just premiered a new track from Mirel Wagner’s forthcoming debut. The February issue of MOJO hipped me to this Ethiopian-born, Finland-raised artist. I can’t describe her music without using the word sparse. This track and her last feature her slightly rough voice over haunting acoustic guitar picking. Both leave plenty of space between the notes — a quality I particularly relish these days.
The stunning video for her last single, “No Death,” is below.
