OOFJ Offer Sweeping Synth-Pop Single ‘I Forgive You’
The new song will appear on the duo's upcoming second album
Forgiveness never sounded so foreboding as it does in OOFJ’s “I Forgive You.” The new single — from the Los Angeles synth-pop duo’s upcoming album, Acute Feast — builds a good deal of drama out of its sweeping and darkly cinematic string intro, but then the percolating beat hits, and it sounds main-credits worthy. It’s tied together with the eerie high-pitched lilt of singer Katherine Mills-Rymer, reminiscent of a more serene Beth Gibbons of Portishead, as she moans the ambiguous chorus: “I forgive you / Like I’m supposed to.”
Listen to the new track below, and look out for Acute Feast April 21 on Ring the Alarm / Fake Diamond.
