Fresh off a European tour with Dua Lipa and about to head out on the road with indie-pop darlings Fickle Friends, Anglo-Danish trio Off Bloom today release their 5-track Lover Like Me EP, comprising feisty single “Shut Up And Let Me Walk,” the Hudson Mohawke-produced kiss-off “rockefe11a (F**k That To Be Honest),” glittering four-to-the-floor workout “Golden Dreams,” down-tempo 2-step number “Hey Bae” and, finally, confident title track “Lover Like Me.” LISTEN
Speaking about the EP’s creation, the band explains, “This EP is about love, sex, frustration, intoxication and of course loyalty loyalty loyalty. It’s a culmination of tracks that came together at very different times of our lives, all representing what we were feeling at the time, but with a similar vibe running through them.
This group of songs represents the last 3-4 months of our lives – our ups and downs, our fuck-ups and successes, our loves and losses. We had an amazing time creating this EP and got to experience so much, and those experiences shaped the music, for instance working with our musical hero Hudson Mohawke. Really we just want to connect to the people listening to these tracks and hopefully some people will see themselves in them and in us and want to join the bloominati.”
The Lover Like Me EP comes after previous single ‘Falcon Eye’, the follow up to the Anglo-Danish trio’s breakthrough debut EP Love To Hate It.
The trio – Mette on vocals and Mads & Alex on production – formed in Copenhagen but recently moved to London. Their unique, boundary-pushing sound is the perfect melding of Scandinavian electro pop and a new wave of UK and US beats with global influences. The band is from the same forward-thinking young Danish scene as MØ, Liss, Vera and Vasco, have worked with the likes of Two Inch Punch, Kid Harpoon and AlunaGeorge and have more exciting collaborations in the pipeline.
