Agnes Obel – ABC, Glasgow – 8 June 2017

I really enjoyed her first album ‘Philharmonics’, though not been so keen on recent albums, but thought it would be good to see her live, and accompanied by 3 versatile musicians it was a really enjoyable show. 

Agnes has a subtle, smoky voice that compliments her intricate piano led songs with typically downbeat lyrics. A fragile, delicate sound that would work better in more intimate surroundings. An unusual atmosphere for a ‘rock’ venue … the feeling more like a classical recital, but things warmed up and got more enthusiastic by the end.

7.5/11 Attended by George
