Welcome to “En sang til Agnes” the procedure through which the Danish song for FDLC 5 will be selected!
As the title of the National Final suggests (for those who don’t understand Danish, “En sang til Agnes” means “A song for Agnes”), our Danish representative has been internally selected and is no other than Agnes Obel.
Agnes is a 34 years old Danish singer/songwriter. She writes, plays, sings, records and produces all her material herself. When at work, Agnes creates her own world, or as she calls it, a bubble or bell jar, to make her music. Once inside (or should that be outside?), she’s no longer conscious of what’s going on. This is the mystery of her modus operandi, something she cannot explain. Which simply adds to the ethereal quality of her music. Agnes has so far released two studio albums: Philarmonics (4 October 2010) and Aventine (30 September 2013).
After hours of consideration and of several listenings, the Danish organizers managed to shortlist 3 songs. However, we were unable to decide all on our own which one to send in the end. That’s where your precious help should come in handy.
Song 1: “Fuel to Fire”
Song 2: “The Curse”
Song 3: “Riverside”
