Emilie & Ogden isn’t that much more than what’s there in the title — Emilie Kahn, singer and songwriter behind the whole project, and her harp that’s charmingly called Ogden. There’s some sparse instrumentation from her backing band on “What Happened,” the second single we’ve heard from her upcoming debut album 10,000, but the focal points are just her and her instrument, and it’s easy to hear why. The song’s about a sociopath, and it takes on the kind of circular logic that you need when dealing with someone like that — “what happened to you?” is asked over and over, with the only real answer being the sting of a drum.
