Society of Sound: Ofeliadorme

The May release on Bowers & Wilkins Society of Sound features the seductive pop qualities of Ofeliadorme.

Their album Secret Fires is a mix of ambient, new wave, stargazing electronica that’s warm and inviting, yet stark and mysterious.

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.

"everyone is screaming and we don't want the scream to be heard."

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), ‘Secret Fires’ is an impeccably realized and unforced record, full of natural beauty. A rare thing indeed.
