London-based duo Ooberfuse are back with a ground-breaking new single called ‘Summer Skies’ - which is the first of two contrasting tracks. This new single will be followed up with ‘Vanish The Night’ - set for an October release ahead of their upcoming album ‘A State of Emergency’.
Ooberfuse is comprised of songwriter and vocalist Cherrie Anderson and multi-instrumentalist and producer Hal St John. Since their debut, Ooberfuse have received critical acclaim across the music world (Rolling Stone, Music Week, The Guardian) and been endorsed by legendary trailblazers such as Erasure, Boy George and Paul Oakenfold.
And with the release of ‘Summer Skies’ they take no hostages in engrossing their quickly growing fanbase to their mysterious and mercurial soundscape. From showcasing at The Great Escape to opening for rudimental in Beijing, with this meritorious new single, Ooberfuse have added the walk to their talk.
Talking of the release, the duo states: “The song has layers of meaning - The broad theme is after the chill of winter comes the warmth of summer - a metaphor for going through the trials of life and coming out intact.” (St John). “For me, our song is about treading the fine line between despair and hope using apocalyptic imagery.”

The duo has also built an east-to-west reputation for their live performances, with tours to Japan, China, Korea, India, Philippines, Italy, Spain, and Portugal. UK radio support has been received from BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, BBC Radio London’s Sunny and Shay.
As you can see, Ooberfuse are cooking up a storm early into their musical journey, but we are certain there’s much more to come. ‘Summer Skies’ is a very good way to introduce yourself to the band, but all their songs contrast from one another, so be sure to delve deeper.
