A new album, a new sound and a no-nonsense pixie cut, Oh Land returns with her first single and video for “Head Up High” off her upcoming album “Earth Sick”. Although the track was initially forgotten, the track saw the light of day after a friend reminded her of the song she wrote for them. Written about her friend struggling romantically, “Head Up High” rides on a dance-pop sound with high-energy, heavy-thumping beats. With it’s dimly-lit video with an angst-filled Oh Land, it’s a bit of a change of direction for the flowery pop-singer now driving harder on this track with more streamlined, beat-driven sound. However, despite the angry fit that Oh Land throws in the video, it’s still an inspirational track. Oh, and her friend, well they’re in a flourishing relationship as we speak.
