‘Lover Like Me’ is a steamy affair, and Off Bloom have just released a video to match.
Premiering right here right now, ‘Lover Like Me’ is the title track of the Danish band’s new EP. It is full of intimacy, intrigue, and lovers, with a video that flows perfectly from their words. “Someone to care / And to please / Good is good enough for me / Prioritize / What I need / Good is good enough for me / I wish I had a lover like me / That get me in the motion / Slow motion / Someone that’s good for my body.”
Splitting their time between London and Copenhagen, Mette, Mads and Alex are a trio that is smashing it, to put it in simple terms. They’ve just come off tour with Dua Lipa and Fickle Friends, and they’ve worked with producer Hudson Mohawke on ‘rockefe11a (F—k That To Be Honest)’, a track on the latest EP.
‘Lover Like Me’, the band say, “is about love, sex, frustration, intoxication and of course loyalty loyalty loyalty.” And it’s impossible for you to not want to move your hips to the beat of this track. Yes, it’s addictive. Yes, it will make you move. And yes, it’s meaningful.
Off Bloom told tmrw, “The lover like me video is the last chapter of the video trilogy that we have made in connection with the EP! Every video has one of the primary colours as a theme and they are all linked together! ‘Shut Up and Let Me Walk’ is yellow and aggressive and ‘rockefe11a’ is red and mellow!
“‘Lover Like Me’ has a blue theme and moves in a more emotional, sensual universe dominated by reflections, doubled images and contorted frames! It plays with the literal thought of craving a lover like yourself, and the gross and narcissistic elements in that, but also the very human thing of wanting your lover to be as close to you and know you like you know yourself!!”
After this video, we wish we had a lover like Off Bloom…
