I stumbled upon some interesting news! Singer-songwriter Mirel Wagner from Espoo, who has a thing for gothic blues, has been signed to the legendary American label Sub Pop!
You don’t know Sub Pop? Well, they became famous in the 1990’s when they signed a bunch of grunge bands in Seattle that would soon be very successful; Nirvana, Soundgarden and Mudhoney to name just three.
Today they deal with bands like Fleet Foxes, Postal Service, Beach House and The Shins to name a few. Mirel is certainly in good company, and the Sub Pop roster gets strengthened by a woman with some very mesmerizing, original sounds.
Onnea Mirel! (= That’s “Congratz Mirel” in Finnish)
Now, take some time to watch the music video for the song Joe, from her debut album released in 2011. The views-counter is shamefully low at the moment.
