Alt-Pop Artist Ofelia K Releases Misty New Single "Different"
Los Angeles chanteuse Ofelia K has several years’ worth of wistful singles under her belt, harboring a dreamy collection meant to lull listeners into a sense of soporific safety. Her voice itself is the dream — it’s thin like the trail of a ghost and clear like a bell, so anything she sings is destined to enchant.
A few days ago, Ofelia released her latest single, “Different.” Hear what she had to tell us about the new track below:
“Different” is aptly named in the sense of Ofelia’s own body of work — it is different for her, devoid of the usual sweetness embedded in her sound and packed this time with charges of electricity. Opening on shadowy synth swells sparkling in the background of sad keys, “Different” exists on its own sonic plane. For a full minute, it drones an eerie experimental melody but soon an urgency enters the equation. Suddenly, deep percussive thumps make a statement among rapid-fire shimmer beats and swollen synth that only serves to get bigger as Ofelia’s magic voice delivers breathy lines lost in the cloud of cranking, chugging electronica. “Different” is a feat of mysticism — it’s entirely its own, a tense alt-pop sound that serves to astound.
