off bloom – Orchid

There’s some serious stuff going on in Denmark right now. The smallest of the Nordic countries has given us in recent times terrific acts such as Liss, Kill J, Chinah, Vera, Goss, Sekuoia… and I could go on and on. Now it’s time to introduce another great one from Copenhagen, an experimental pop trio called off bloom. Alex, Mads and vocalist Mette spent the past year writing music both in their hometown and in London, drawing inspiration from – and collaborating with – some of their above-mentioned Danish friends, like Liss, Kill J and Vera.

The result can be heard in their debut song Orchid, which serves as introduction to the band’s imagery and sound, made of future-pop electronic percussions, glitchy vocals and smooth, R&B-tinged textures. It’s also the first song to be taken from off bloom’s debut EP Love To Hate It, which will be released on October 1th via Sport Records and can count on production/mix credits from the likes of Two Inch Punch, Jamie Snell (Mura Masa & Nao) and George Reid (of AlunaGeorge).
