Electronic duo O Future (previously OOFJ), comprised of Katherine Mills Rymer and Jens Bjornkjaer, have released the video for “Telephone“.
“Telephone,” which will be featured on O Future’s forthcoming album Voyeur (out November 14th) takes a transparent and frank look at the realisms of existing in a manner you truly desire and the feeling of craving something more. “It is about not having enough friends and yet hating phone calls and lying down on heavy carpets that have been freshly vacuumed,” explains Rymer. “The only good and spicy phone calls come from a new lover, an old lover, a crush or your best friend. Maybe when you find out you inherited you dream house. That phone call would be great. But most times, 99 percent of times, no one calls. Except the fantasy cruise lines which declares…You been selected.. and you have won.“
Upon the release of “Telephone,” the track reached #2 on the Hype Machine charts and prompted publications like High Clouds to say the band “once again challenges pop music and points out the foibles of our modern society.” Voyeur blends the signature sounds the duo have built by combining their analytically-created indie-electronic riffs with their signature orchestral symphonies and features guest appearances from Sune Rose Wagner of The Ravonettes, Matt Popieluch of Big Search and percussion work by Trentemollers drummer Jakob Hoyer. The album will include O Future’s previously released singles “Smell You,” which has already reached #1 on the Hype Machine charts, and “Spy” which recently premiered via Earmilk.
Since meeting in New York while pursuing two creatively different careers, the duo began working together on music almost serendipitously and have since released two albums under OOFJ, have directed, shot, produced, and starred in their narrative-driven music videos, scored Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case by Andreas Johnsen, as well as an upcoming feature length documentary by Weiwei, and an upcoming documentary on Grammy nominated Lukas Graham, who is the biggest selling artist ever from Denmark. With their new venture as O Future, the duo is actively working on scoring Andrew Van Baal’s upcoming feature film Ambrosia, creating an algorithmic opera with the graphic design team SULSOLSAL and a violin concerto with The Concert Master of the Royal Danish Opera.
