New Honda Civic HF commercial featuring Oh Land's new song "We Turn it Up."

In March, OH LAND released her self-titled debut album. Originally from Denmark, Oh Land's songs are a visual storybook of dreamlike soundscaping with rich imagery of lush melodies. Get hooked on her first single "Sun of a Gun," a multi-layered sonic dance song or the infectiously sweet "White Nights." Most recently, you can hear her song "We Turn It Up" in the new Honda Civic HF commercial. (You know, the one with that cute monster hanging out with those cute girls).

"I want my music to feel like 2050 meets something really classic, like meeting a stranger that feels as familiar as an old friend," says Oh Land.

Hoping to make waves here in the States, Oh Land moved to New York to finish recording with help from Dan Carey (The Kills & Franz Ferdinand) and Dave McCracken (Depeche Mode, AFI and Beyonce). A self-booked tour of the US and performances at 2009's SXSW put her on everyone's radar, especially Epic Records who eventually signed her. In July, it looks as though Oh Land will performing stateside with a handful of dates on the east coast and was just confirmed to be the openening act for Katy Perry for the San Diego (8/19), San Jose (8/12) and Santa Barbara (8/13 & 8/14) dates.
