When we should be seeking solace in hap, hap, happy tunes, we can’t help but to be drawn into the darkness of 23-year-old Ethiopian Finn, Mirel Wagner. Her lyric, as you can see by the title of her new LP, may be dark, but, Wagner’s light delivery has us clinging to her words, trying to understand her world. We could not wait to share Wagner’s first album, ‘Mirel Wagner’ and now we hope you can shift your emotional world and dive into hers.
