The new single, “One Reality”, is an exciting, upbeat electronica track from London band Ooberfuse that’s so hot it makes social consciousness sexy! Mixing elements of the orient and pop on a digital soundscape, Ooberfuse has created a cool club hit, and it’s hard to keep from moving and swaying along with this song. Why would you want to do that though? It’s fun and fresh, dark and sexy, and much deeper than your average EDM track.
The lyrics are actually a major highlight in this song for me. Unlike most electronica that I catch today, there’s a lot of real world lyrics philosophizing about a more utopian existence, soaking in the “one reality” of love, and frustrations about our individual ability to know how much we do but still not attain that “one reality”. After visiting the shorelines of mainland Philippines where the residents were recovering from the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan (aka Typhoon Yolanda), Ooberfuse, made up of Hal and Cherrie, had the inspiration to create this gem of a song! The message is fantastic, but I can’t forget to mention that “One Reality” also has phat bass lines (Don’t even think about listening to this track through some weak speakers, or you’ll miss half the fun!), groovy and twisted backing melodies and effects, and Cherrie’s voice has the perfect amount of sweetness and strength to hold it together. The overall composition is spot on, and I love that there’s a certain pervading sadness mixed with a ton of hope!
