Mirel Wagner 'Is This What Love Looks Like'

Listen to Mirel Wanger's new African music single 'Is This What Love Looks Like.'


Finnish/Ethiopian singer-songwriter Mirel Wagner returns to haunt more bluesy spirits with her new single "Is This What Love Looks Like." It's been just over a year since Okayafrica sat down with Mirel to discuss the release of her bare-boned and beautiful self-titled US debut on Friendly Fire. In her latest track, "Is This What Love Looks Like," the folkstress sounds wise beyond her years. Gritty in the face of poisoned love, Mirel spins a soft spoken tale that forgoes voice level in favor of a feeling to could direct souls to the highest destinations. Be prepared for the subtleness of this beauty to loom inside your thoughts and ears. Stream Mirel Wagner's "Is This What Love Looks Like" below.
