Agnes Obel broke through by her debut album Philharmonics, which was released three years ago. It is a collection of songs built almost exclusively on piano and vocal. Obel admits very significant influence of Erik Satie and his atmosperic minimalism. Another influences were Claude Debussy or the later records of PJ Harvey.
