Label: Ring the Alarm
Product Type: VINYL LP

LA-based electronic duo OOFJ (Jenno Bjørnkjær and Katherine Mills-Rymer) present their sophomore album, Acute Feast. Bjørnkjær and Mills-Rymer met in New York City while Bjørnkjær was working on music for Lars von Trier's film Melancholia (2011). This chance encounter developed into both a romantic and sonic chemistry that would eventually lead to the couple collaborating on music that formed the foundations of OOFJ. After winning critics over in June 2014 with the sensual, nostalgic aura of "Snakehips," OOFJ released "You're Always Good" on Noisey in November 2014. The track starts with orchestral strings paired with thick, foreboding basslines and ends in a rhythmic explosion featuring the frenetic jungle-esque percussion played by Trentemøller's Jakob Høyer and Mills-Rymer's darkly romantic vocals. In February 2015, The Guardian premiered the video for "I Forgive You," the third single off Acute Feast. It's a sweeping, hauntingly lush track of duplicity that feels like a restrained underwater heartbreak - a tale about perfect beings, aliens, being imperfect. Equal parts glamorous and nightmarish, with a glittery, seductive tone to it, the track hints at the otherworldly, almost hyper-real world that OOFJ don't just reside in, but have orchestrated.
