Ofelia K

Following on from last year’s ‘Plastic Flower’ EP, Ofelia K returns with new single ‘Cinco’. In writing it, she says that she was “embracing the freedom to get loose and play”, which comes through in the final result. A shimmering pop track, it moves at a confidently slow pace, armed with sonic embellishments that complement rather than weigh down the core song.

Released through South By Sea, the song is a precursor to a new EP, due out later this year. It certainly sets that up as a release to wait for eagerly: ‘Plastic Flower’ was good, but if ‘Cinco’ is anything to go by, this EP looks like being the one that really sets her up for future success.

If you’re in LA, you can catch her playing a Sofar Sounds show at a secret location on 26 Apr. More info and details on how to find out where that location is here.
