The Danish trio Off Bloom – Mette on vocals and Mads & Alex on production – formed in Copenhagen but recently moved to London. Their unique, boundary-pushing sound is the perfect melding of Scandinavian electro pop and a new wave of UK and US beats with global influences. The band is from the same forward-thinking young Danish scene as MØ, Liss, Vera and Vasco, have worked with the likes of Two Inch Punch, Kid Harpoon and AlunaGeorge.  With no signs of slowing down, Off Bloom dropped their newest EP, Love Like Me today.  Sharing 5 tracks of energetic synth hooks, R’n’B vocals and sharp production that push these tracks into edgy electro pop vibe territory.  Give their single “Lover Like Me” a spin and head to you favorite music platform to hear the rest of Love Like Me.

We caught up with Off Bloom to chat about life on the road and got the scoop on all the cool spots to check out in Copenhagen.  Check out all their favorite places in the guide to their home town here.
