OOFJ x #FakeDiamondInterview
21.04.2015FDR: OOFJ, can you in one sentence each tell us, who are you?
J - My name is Jens BjÝrnkjśr but most people call me Jenno. We are a duo making electronic music mixed with a lot of strings and all sorts of darkness put into it. We are also married.
K - Iím Katherine Mills Rymer everyone calls me Katherine. I have no nicknames besides from very private ones.
FDR: So Katherine and Jenno, youíre located in the City of Angels. Whatís that like?
It is pretty great actually. We live in a house on a hill in the neighborhood of Highland Park which is on the east side of the city. Itís a beautiful place and the weather here is very nice almost everyday all year around. Especially compared to Denmark. The sun is shining all the time but we actually prefer to stay indoor and make music in our studio with the curtains drawn . Also because In LA there is a lot of traffic so we might as well stay in our house.
FDR: The Danish audience hasnít really gotten to know you yet, although Jenno is very Danish. Jenno, what do you most like and miss when thinking about Denmark? And Katherine, what do you miss about South Africa?
J - I miss my friends and my family the most and also the drunken nights in the Copenhagen nightlife.
Going somewhere and bike somewhere else and ending up in someones apartment until the sun gets up. That's very Danish to me. Also just walking on the streets people donít really do that here.
K - I miss my mom and brother. LA looks like South Africa in places so in someways it's good for something in me to live here. I miss the smell of South Africa.
FDR: Can you tell us a secret about "Acute Feast", that no one knows yet?
The cover of the album is made by our friend Hannes Bernard inspired by the lighting artist James Turrel. We played a show in a house in LA called the Lauther house famous from. amongst others. The Big Lebowsky.(Where Jackie Treehorn lives) This house has an extra building made by James Turrell that is insanely beautifull and we fell in love and got into his work being there. There is a hologram on the back of the album which we had made in China.
