New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Swiss experimental-pop artist and harp-extraordinaire Linda Vogel shares latest single 'Isis & Osiris' set for release on 20th April via Radicalis Music. The single was produced by Manuel Egger (Ju, Trio Heinz Herbert, Mûr), and follows debut EP titled 'On' released in February 2018. The nearly twenty-minute offering gained Linda Vogel considerable exposure through respectable Swiss publications such as Noisey, Der Bund, Negativewhite and Rockstar Magazine and has been featured in the Tages-Anzeiger daily mail, a prominent national newspaper. Switzerland's sect of Vice's Noisey has featured a music video for Linda Vogel's previous single 'Prisoner' at least twice since it's initial release.

Hailing from Zürich, Linda Vogel began learning to play the harp as early as age six, thus prompting her to show interest in opera and singing. After studying classical music, and exploring her true calling, it was then time to gracefully transform her experimental leanings into her own musical language. Vogel then recruited drummer and percussionist Vincent Glanzmann, who holds credit performing and collaborating with renowned percussionist Gerry Hemingway. Linda Vogel has also received airplay on important Swiss radio stations such as public radio station SRF 2 and leftflield stations Radio Stadtfilter, Kanal K, Radio LoRa, Radio RNV and Radio La Fabrik.

Influenced by an array of nostalgic and current innovators from Bob Dylan to Nirvana, and Chance the Rapper to Nina Simone and so on, although Linda Vogel has developed her own unique signature style with her imaginative brand of experimental-harp-induced-pop. Utilizing techniques such as bespoke mechanical triggers and various home-made extensions for her electro-acoustic harp, as well various effect pedals to encapsulate on ethereal atmospheres within her captivating aural soundscapes. Linda Vogel's music could be best compared to the mysticism surrounding similarly like-minded musicians such as Anna von Hausswolff and Julianna Barwick for her experiments in texture and atmosphere, and singers such as Marissa Nadler or Sharon Van Etten for her exquisitely delicate and moody vocal delivery.

The latest single 'Isis & Osiris' begins with slow-strummed harp patterns and melancholic swirls as Vogel whispers a spoken word passage and hums a melodic tune. Glanzmann's percussive build starts to glow here, progressing with each passing bar like torrents of bliss. The vocal delivery is beautifully raw, yet elegantly reflective, with phrases like "I am not yet twenty feet tall", it's clear that Linda Vogel wears her heart on her sleeve, and reinterprets this into magnificently hypnotic soundscapes.

Commenting on the new single, Linda Vogel states: "I wrote the song 'Isis & Osiris' in a small, beautifully mystic village in Brittany called "end of the world". I had some trouble falling asleep at that time."

"Wild, dreamy and mysterious" - Noisey
"We've discovered a new drug. We're not yet sure of its name, but it's delivered through the fingers and the voice of harp-extraordinaire Linda Vogel. Let the beautiful sounds wash over you as Vogel experiments with hypnotic rhythms."-
"Her delicate voice underscores the pleasantly tranquil, dreamy atmosphere, the lyrics are poetic and fragile." - Rockstar Mag

April 13 - Kulturaum Nische - Zurich, Switzerland
April 14 - Stanser Musiktage - Stans, Switzerland
April 21 - Albani - Winterhur, Switzerland
May 11 - Literaturcafé - Bienne, Switzerland
