Hello darkness, my old friend.
Coral Noir’s intro kind of tricks you as it starts with an ambient piano. It is the nicely peculiar use of vocals that reveals the actual vibe of the song, enriched by ethereal synth layers and the mesmerizing slow beat.
Ok Sure teams up with Osopho and Alexi Freeman for their new single titled Coral Noir. Read our discussion below!
Describe your sound in 3 words
Sensual, ethereal and dark.
Tell us a few things about Coral Noir. What is the main idea behind it?
Coral Noir explores beauty in decay. The track seeks to sonically conjure an enchanted deep-sea forest which is simultaneously fertile and at the precipice of oblivion. We were inspired to echo experiences of Australian seascapes.
Listening to your music catalogue, there are many experimental elements. Should electronic music as a form of art challenge the listener?
We’re never happier than when we’ve birthed a wacky experimental bit. Electronic music as art need not be challenging, but we hope our music provokes some form of energy to the listener – perhaps introspection, dark sensuality or melancholy.
Which is your favourite darkest album?
It’s a challenge to pick a favourite. One of our favourites is Mica Levi’s “Under the Skin”. It’s a soundtrack for a horror film by the same name. We also love Sevdaliza’s ‘Ison’.
If you had to choose one Synthesiser (analog or digital) which one would it be?
We’re deeply attached to our Arp Odyssey, despite our inability to tame her. She glistens throughout much of Coral Noir. When tenderly attended to, she is lush, grainy and dynamic.
If your music was a film, which film would that be?
An off-world dystopian sci-fi featuring space goddesses and biomutants in an intergalactic existential crisis.
What is the story behind your name?
Osopho is an amalgamation of the root word “soph” meaning wisdom, bookended by “O”. The “Os” reflect universal truth and wholeness. Ok Sure is a play on her given name Akaysha.
