O Future address people’s vanity and obsessive curiosity on “Voyeur”

O FUTURE‘s self-released new song “Voyeur” is out now.

Formerly known as OOFJ, O Future is the duo consisting of Danish artist Jens Bjornkjaer and Katherine Mills Rymer, originally from South Africa. Mixing electronics with symphony orchestra, they have created their own niche of electronica art pop music by crafting dance-y tunes that sound both oppressive and tantalizing. Their new offering “Voyeur” is no exception.

Sexual perversion – or let’s say “turn-ons” to avoid any sort of kinkshaming – is an inexhaustible source of inspiration and the duo understood this very well. From David Lynch and Alfred Hitchock to Madonna‘s “Open Your Heart” video, pop culture has always dealt with voyeurism, turning the passive viewer into a criminal or sexual accomplice. Besides the physical stimulations, voyeurism also brings a dose of emotional and social consolation. On their suave new cut, O FUTURE like to recall that we all like to spy at other people in our frightening social media age. In their own words:

This song is exactly as the title suggests about getting pleasure from watching, viewing unblinking in the corner. Looking through the keyhole at other people. This modern life is all about looking at other people. Other people’s vanity is our global turn on. This is all at once terrifying, cold, alien, sad and incredibly dystopian spiked- multi/verse sexy.
