Ouri is back with two new tracks “blueprints of us” / “tame me”. The musician, producer, DJ, vocalist, and composer, is known for her many musical collaborations. Both “blueprints of us” and “tame me” are relaxed and minimalistic, yet they maintain a hypnotising quality, both through Ouri’s ethereal vocal and the track’s airy layering.

Talking of the single, Ouri shares: “I forget, remember and forget, but ultimately remember that we are all animated by the same indescribable thing called life. When we love each other, and when we ignore each other. That’s the only thought that helps me integrate the discrepancy of human experiences on this planet. Creating a liminal space between the intangible world of music and the actual world we live in. I had the privilege of having Oli XL, Decz, Loukeman and John Debold’s touches support my vision for these two songs, a dream come true.”

“blueprints of us” / “tame me” follows Ouri’s collaborative EP i had this dream that you were my sister with Antoniya, and the standalone single “Twin” in Spring, as well as opening for Yaeji on her North American tour. Ouri’s 2023 releases follow her debut album Frame of a Fauna, and features the tracks ‘High & Choking Pt 1’, which was later remixed by Jacques Greene, ‘Chains’, and ‘Fonction Naturelle’. The new song also follows a joint project with Helena Deland titled Hildegard, which Pitchfork hailed as “pure creative symbiosis”.

Ouri’s musical journey began when she moved to Montreal from France at just 16 with the dream of becoming a composer. As she developed her compositional ability, as well as her production and vocal chops, she became a fixture in Montreal’s underground rave scene and was eventually selected to take part in Red Bull Music Academy’s Montreal Bass Camp. From there, her profile began to grow as she headlined Boiler Room’s Montreal showcase, toured with the likes of Yves Tumor and Arooj Aftab, and released her first EPs Superficial and We Share Our Blood.
