“What Happened” strikes a perfect balance between catchy and quirky. It’s a song that appears all nice and cute on the surface, yet sometimes disturbingly so; just like the accompanying video.
Elimie & Ogden is a creation of Emilie Kahn, a Montreal-based songwriter, and her 38-string harp, Ogden. As the name suggests, it’s not a typical solo project nor a proper duo, rather a human-object assemblage based on an intimate relationship and intertwined agencies of a musician and her instrument.
The synergy can be heard in the sublime harmonies and confident performance throughout their critically acclaimed debut album, “10 000.”
