Obel’s never been one for the grandiose, but here on her fourth album she’s stripped back further than before to hautological bones for an album that bridges the gap between Arthur russell’s ‘World Of Echo’ and cocteaus’ ‘heaven or las vegas’.

If you’ve been following her trajectory with us you’ll not be disappointed – this first album for the iconic classical label deutsche grammophon seems like an odd fit, but ‘myopia’ leans heavily into her more abstract moments and away from traditional songwriting, with the label’s ability to make a single bowed cello string fill a room a crucial part of what makes this spacious album so beguiling. This is one to stick on your turntable at home when you’ve got time to sit and enjoy it – a truly special album that sits alongside Laurie Anderson in making the otherworldly tangible. “the pitch shifting of her vocals to create an eerie aural cinema is hypnotic” - mojo
