Ouri’s aptly titled “Surreal” is constantly in limbo, equally uplifting and melancholic. She offers a refreshing take on dance music, mixing minimal house and techno tropes with structures and melodies similar to that of an orchestral composition. Viewed through the lens of its corresponding music video, “Surreal” juxtaposes images of darkness and beauty, and life and decay.
The Montreal resident is set to release her debut solo effort Maze on May 8. The release is made up of six original works, one of which being a remix from Dramasuit. The remix plays within the expansive yet minimal atmosphere laid out by “Surreal”, though never repeating itself.
