Hear Mirel Wagner’s “Oak Tree” From Her 8/12 Sub Pop Debut!

The immensity of Mirel Wagner’s haunting and beautiful music is immediately apparent as soon as you press play on her brand new video for “Oak Tree” (which, if you haven’t already, you should do now), the lead-off track to her August 12th Sub Pop debut, When the Cellar Children See the Light of Day

When the Cellar Children See the Light of Day is an impressive set of songs, uniform and cohesive. Wagner ditched a set of older new songs and wrote the majority of the songs up on the peninsula of Hailuoto in northern Finland, in an old log cabin next to the family home of Wagner’s manager Aki Roukala. The isolation and relative starkness of the place (no central heating, no electricity) helped bring out the songs (read more at Sub Pop).
