Ojerime is caught in flux on future RnB cut ‘Alarming’

Words: Dylan Murphy

On her new single, the fast-rising London singer has grown numb to betrayal.

RnB is having a serious moment in the UK and Ireland. Artists are pulling from classic sounds to create the future in a way that’s referential without drowning in their influences. At the forefront of this is London singer Ojerime, who today shares her new single ‘Alarming’.

Having found fans in KAYTRANADA and Rosalía to name a few through tracks like ‘Give It Up 2 Me’ and ‘Jetset‘, Ojerime is putting her own stamp on a sound that’s being twisted and contorted in new and exciting ways from a wave of acts inspired as much by electronic as they are hip hop.

Floating over sombre guitars and dense percussion, Ojerime wrestles with conflicting feelings in uniquely hypnotic fashion. The single and visualiser comes ahead of summer and lands as the perfect antidote to the baggage of the darker months.
