CMU Approved

Approved: Ouri

By | Published on Monday 24 September 2018


Producer and multi-instrumentalist Ouri returns this week with new EP ‘We Share Our Blood’, her first for Ghostly International. It’s also her first solo release since 2017 debut album ‘Superficial’, and it finds her still firmly at the top of her game.

Each of the tracks on the EP has its own distinct mood – within an overriding sonic world – her knack for sharply defined beats underpinning and pushing forward each piece of music. On lead single ‘Escape’, that percussion emerges from a fog of synths, snapping the track into focus, before it becomes enveloped again once its story has been told.

“As I continue to create music, I want the whole experience to be even more raw”, says Ouri. “No one else is included for this one; from writing to mastering, the process is direct from me to the listener”.
