Having previously released under the solo moniker of Nömak, Ö is Nicolas Petitfrère’s most personal and ambitious project to date, using the human voice and body as vehicles for a unique strain of expansive electronic music.
In embarking on this exciting new chapter with PC Music, Ö – who has amassed an impressive list of productions for high-profile pop artists including Charli XCX and Christine and the Queens – finds a platform to explore his singular approach to sound design alongside some of the most pioneering figures in music today.
‘AFK’ serves as an introduction to an exciting new chapter for Ö, with additional production from A. G. Cook, whom Nicolas has collaborated with previously on releases for Charli XCX.
On the new single, Ö elaborates:
« AFK » (away from keyboard) represents the kind of panic you’d be feeling if you woke up to a world without internet, feeling completely isolated from the world. The best way for us to illustrate that, was to create a song, loud and brutal, completely unpredictable with a heavy eerie feeling of nostalgia. Funny how that song still echoes today, with the covid crisis going on and forced isolation across the globe.
