Video of the Day #50: Nive Nielsen & The Deer Children

March 31, 2011 § 1 Comment

I can’t say I’m the biggest expert on the Greenlandic indie scene, but recently I stumbled upon Nive Nielsen & The Deer Children and their songs are pretty marvellous. The album Nive Sings! came out in december 2010 and you can listen to it on their bandcamp. The album was produced by John Parish. Howe Gelb features on a couple of tracks and in one interview she named bands/artists like Townes Van Zandt, Michael Hurley, Giant Sand.. as her influences. So she definitely has a great taste in music. But enough with this pointless namedropping. The thing that matters is that she writes captivating folk songs and has a really beautiful voice. What a lovely album and what a lovely video.
