Agnes Obel – Just So
Just So is the second track lifted from Agnes Obelâ€™s debut album Philharmonics.
Ostensibly, there isnâ€™t very much to this single just Ms Obelâ€™s hauntingly soft vocals, accompanied by sparse piano. Itâ€™s almost childlike in itâ€™s performance, and could quite easily pass you by, but after a few listens and it starts to reveal itself: The vocal harmonies, the male vocal accompaniment that comes and goes almost in an instant and the subtle changes of mood from the piano. It’s bewitching.
Itâ€™s a clichÃ© but this single, and the album for that matter, are best appreciated after midnight with a good brandy.
