Debut album “Inflamed rides” fuses primordial energy with playful acoustic psychedelia and precise math rock, but with an added seasoning of intense ambient electronica. Across the ten tracks, O.R.k illuminate a deep subconscious landscape, rich with controlled chaos and populated with archetypal forms and characters. Highlights include the mezmerising ‘Pyre’, accompanied by a stunning animated video from Oktopus Productions and the jarring urgency of “Funfair” which promises entertaining rides in the most intimidating manner. Imposing, but also encompassing a hypnotic, powerful beauty, O.R.k. is a forward thinking, mischievous slap around the head of complacency, and a captivating listen from start to finish.
