You might recall watching one curiously haunting, apocalyptic drama in the fall of 2011 by Lars von Trier. The music of L.A. duo OOFJ is derivative of the film, Melancholia, in more ways than one. Originally enlisted to collaborate on the soundtrack for the award-winning film, band members Jenno Bjørnkjær and Katherine Mills Romans built upon their instant chemistry and continued to make material after the score’s production. Much of their initial stylistic tendencies have been preserved, OOFJ extending upon cinematic themes and fusing terse, orchestral movements with minimalistic electronic breakdowns. Their debut album, Disco To Die To, released April 29th via Fake Diamond, was an incredible accident. Jenno originally sought to initiate a solo, instrumental musical endeavor, but his introduction to Katherine drastically changed his direction. The first track off the album, “Death Teeth” was recorded in the vocalist’s bedroom during a trip to South Africa for her father’s funeral. The rest of the album is similarly cosmopolitan, the duo recording in Germany, Copenhagen, and Los Angeles, along with recruiting the Prague Symphony Orchestra. Watch the newest video for OOFJ‘s single “Pinstripe Suit”, featuring a collage of beautifully unsettling imagery.
