Ōkami Drops New Dark Wave Heartbreak

okami

Ōkami is an emerging independent record artist and producer who made his solo debut in 2020 with the album Project Rain. That record introduced a multi-talented singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist with a sound that blends elements of classic post-punk, punk, and rock with modern electronic instrumentation and production.

Originally from the UK, Ōkami moved to Spain with his family when he was 9 years old. By the age of 12 he was crafting songs in multiple genres, from hip-hop to metal. By 17 he was producing his own records. Since debuting, the prolific producer has released nearly two dozen singles and a full length album.

“Nothing Hurst (Like You)” is the brand new single from Ōkami, released worldwide via all major streaming services on December 15, 2023. A distant lo-fi guitar opens the track before the beat lands on a bass guitar-driven downtempo minor-key alt-rock vibe, bringing to mind the dark wave vibes of pioneering bands like The Cure and Joy Division. On the mic, the singer offers a heartbroken meditation as hypnotic electronics paint the edges of the mix.

"The song is about a relationship that has turned toxic, which leads to constant self doubt and being manipulated by your partner..."
