Listen: OOFJ - "Snakehips" [Premiere]

11 June 2014, 10:45 | Written by Jamie Cunningham

Electro-pop duo OOFJ ‘s history may just read like it was crafted by Monocle magazine. After all, the now LA-based duo (who are also a couple outside of their music) met in New York when South African vocalist Katherine Mills-Rymer met Danish producer Jenno Bjørnkjær while Bjørnkjær was helping score Lars Von Trier’s ode to depression, Melancholia. However, while their intriguing jet-setting history may sound like a guide to better living, their musical collaboration OOFJ has the breathtaking beauty to literally soundtrack the more inspiring moments of life. ​

After releasing debut album Disco To Die To, the pair now followed it up with new single, “Snakehips”. Combining all the effortless cool electro influences of Cliff Martinez with Mills-Rhymers’ hushed flirty whisper, “Snakehips” combines a defiantly addictive bassline with gorgeous synths that seem to glitter under the urban lights of the City of Angels.

With a sophomore album due this fall, “Snakehips” is a blissful endorphin-producing cut of electronica that hints at a bright future for the duo. ​

“Snakehips” is released on 16 June (digital single).
