Inspired by Rimbaud’s poem, Ophelie, Bologna-based trio Ofeliadorme live up to their name. Seductive, tender, immersive, and shrouded in a mystery befitting ancient prose, theirs is a crossroads between the serenity of Cocteau Twins, Portishead’s emotive darkness, and PJ Harvey’s shape shifting pop qualities. It’s ambient, New Wave, dreamy, stargazing electronica. One part foggy warmth, another stark desperation, the results are truly unique, and utterly compelling. Already coveted in their Italian homeland, a country with a burgeoning electronic scene right now, the combination of Francesca Bono’s vocals and guitars, Michele Postpischl’s percussion, and Tato Izzia’s synths, low ends, and bewitching noises create an intense yet subtle sound. Far from an oxymoron, some might say it’s inescapable but somehow also meditative. A veritable opiate high that draws you in before refusing to let go. Over the years the band released 3 LPs and numerous EPs, 7″ and singles, and has been touring in the UK, China, US, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium. Produced, mixed and recorded by genre-straddling UK legend Howie B (Bjork, Tricky, U2, Soul II Soul) and engineered by Joe Hirst (Four Tet, Jarvis Cocker, DJ Shadow), Ofeliadorme’s third full length offering, Secret Fires, contains all the hallmarks of his own HB Recordings, the imprint carrying the record. Ofeliadorme: Francesca Bono (vocals, guitars, synth) Michele Postpischl (drums) Tato Izzia (bass synth, synth, electronics)
