The folks at Sub Pop Records have recently hitched their wagon to the haunting, enigmatic Mirel Wagner. Signing with the label in February 2014, the Finnish born singer-songwriter is set to bring her forlorn yarns stateside with a forthcoming LP due out this summer. For now, marvel at “What Love Looks Like,” Wagner’s contribution to Music Finland with The Line of Best Fit, a 10-inch compilation that the Music Finland label is putting out in conjunction with the Line of Best Fit. The just-released track finds Wagner navigating through a sparse soundscape, asking in a pained whisper over fingerpicked guitars, “Is this what love looks like?”
Stream the brooding folk tune below, and look out for Music Finland with The Line of Best Fit, out on Record Store Day 2014, a.k.a. April 19.
