Electronic outfit Opia consist of Yale graduates Cole Citrenbaum (vocals/guitar) and Jacob Reske (producer). The duo make atmospheric, R&B-influenced pop informed by their love of EDM, singer/songwriter folk, and a cappella vocals. Last summer, Opia released their debut EP, 'Faded' and embarked on a tour, supporting fast rising EDM DJ Whethan. The EP is a combination of soulful vocals with roiling guitar riffs, heavy instrumental lines and catchy melodies.


“Devil In Disguise”, single taken from 'Faded', is a spunky futuristic electro-funk song elevated by the lush, intricate production and the gritty guitar/throbbing synth combo. The duo brings something new to the table as the guitar is especially prevalent on this track which is uncommon in a genre normally relying on computerized instrumentation.


If you are a fan of artists like Ben Khan, M83 or else Prismo, you will love it! Listen to “Devil In Disguise” and enjoy Opia's EP in its entirety below.

This summertime guitar production mixes well with BabyJake's raspy singing, harmonies and a blackbear type of tone.  Also reminiscent of the Dominic Fike wave that's taking over, we're excited to hear more talente...
