Inspired by Rimbaud's poem, Ophelie, Bologna-based trio Ofeliadorme live up to their name. Seductive, tender, immersive, and shrouded in a mystery befitting ancient prose, theirs is a crossroads between the serenity of Cocteau Twins, Portishead's emotive darkness, and PJ Harvey's shape shifting pop qualities. It's ambient, New Wave, dreamy, stargazing electronica. One part foggy warmth, another stark desperation, the results are truly unique, and utterly compelling.

It was always an ongoing thought”. The album has been created specifically for Bowers & Wilkins' Society Of Sound members.
