Ofri - “That Heavy Magnetism” – Debut Album Launch

Ofri is a Sydney-based singer-songwriter whose unashamedly candid lyrics and intricate piano-vocal arrangements form a particular (and peculiar) brand of chamber folk.  Perhaps even more immediately noticeable than her frankness is her voice, a wild thing which can inhabit every colour of expression — from raw emotionality to heartfelt subtlety, with every shade in-between.  Along with a long list of influences and inspirations (Fiona Apple, Regina Spektor, and Weyes Blood, to name a few), her artistic assuredness, not to mention the idiosyncrasies of a voice well-worn, imbue her songwriting with a startling clarity and vividness.  
“That Heavy Magnetism”, her debut album, is the culmination of four years’ hard work, with many a life-defining experience woven throughout. There’s a sense of growth and expansion, intimacy and space, inevitability, vulnerability, and quite a bit of existentialism.  It’s part 90s art-pop revivalism, part Lilith Fair, part freak folk, and completely, utterly Ofri.

Support from Rin (Rin Evans, they/them), Heaps Grass
