The U.S. has been incredibly lucky when it comes to the number of Nordic artists who have been touring through the country of late. We’ve been working to catch as many shows as we can here in Portland, but it’s getting difficult! Heck, in just a few weeks, both Ghost and Dungen are playing on the same night. Ridiculous.

All that is to say we were thrilled to be able to see Danish electropop sensation Oh Land when she and her three piece band of blue-haired misfits arrived at the Doug Fir Lounge this week. In between her coy shoutouts to Portlandia and surprise at the rapturous response she was getting, Nanna Øland Fabricius sashayed around the stage to the tune of some particularly rich disco-flecked tunes and darkwave scrabblings. While our photos don’t do the show justice, here’s what we captured this past Tuesday night.
