OFRIN /// SACKS ON OUR BACKSby David Pearl | 06.03.14
Happines comes to me when I discover exciting new music, In those moments of revelation I feel like a child in a new candy store.
OFRIN is one of those new and exciting musical revelations that makes what one can say: a brilliant music. After two well acclaimed albums that she made with her partner (“Rust&Velvet” and “On Shore Remain”, in which the band cooperated with Producer/ keyboarder Eddie Stevens from Moloko) comes her latest album “The Bringer” – A fresh start as a solo for the very first time produced all by her. Inspired by such as Bjork, Fever Ray and Planningtorock this amazing album combines all of Ofrin’s inspirations in one becoming a very sharp and honest conceptional album full of powerful and breathtaking songs mixing east and west and discovering her own roots. Coming from north of Israel and living in Berlin for 10 years now you can’t ignore the influence of the city and musical culture on her music, making her an artist that is not afraid of discovering new territories in the musical landscapes mixing between bedroom electronica with Bulgarian choir and other instruments singing about the new people in the new world.
