offonoff [boy.]

싱어 송 라이터 Colde, 프로듀서 0channel 로 구성된 하이그라운드(HIGHGRND), 클럽 에스키모(Club Eskimo) 소속의 듀오 OFFONOFF(오프온오프)는 ‘소년’이라는 수식어가 어울리는 아티스트다. 세밀한 감정을 수더분하게 건드리는 그들의 음악은 솔직하고 맑은 감정을 지닌 소년과 닮아있다. 이러한 OFFONOFF의 데뷔작 [boy.]. 앨범은 주위에서 흔히 만날 수 있지만, 그렇다고 해서 평범하지만은 않은 이야기를 담는다. 그간 느릿한 템포의 프로덕션 속 섬세한 노랫말, 부드러운 분위기 속 긍정적인 투박함을 가진 작품을 선보인 OFFONOFF. 그들은 첫 정규작 [boy.]를 통해 지금까지 빚은 OFFONOFF의 음악적 특성을 공고히 한다.

앨범의 분위기는 밤을 중심으로 하지만 이따금 환기된다. 작품 전체에서 만날 수 있는 콜드의 목소리는 건조하지만, 그 속에 온기가 존재한다. 그래서인지 12곡으로 채워진 앨범은 흑백 영화와 같은 인상을 주다가도, 어느 순간에선 따스한 색감이 느껴진다.

[boy.]에서 OFFONOFF는 사랑이라는 추상적인 감정을 다양한 방법으로 풀어낸다. 이를테면 자동차 안을 둘만의 장소로 설정하고 차 안팎의 여러 사물을 활용해 애정을 표현하거나(“in the car”), 사랑하는 대상을 통해 탄생한 음악과 여기에 맞춰 춤을 추는 연인을 묘사하는 방식이 있다(“춤”). 여러 모습의 사랑이 [boy.]에 담긴다. 앨범을 휘감는 시간적 배경, 밤은 곡의 특성에 따라 다른 장치가 된다. 너무도 긴 밤은 수많은 생각이 떠올리게 하고(“Overthinking“), 고요한 밤은 연인의 음성과 숨결만이 존재하는 순간을 만든다(“midnight”). 또한, 아름다운 밤은 꿈 같은 사랑을 속삭이게 한다(“Moon, 12:04am”).

여전히 소년의 마음을 가진 OFFONOFF의 데뷔작 [boy.]. 차갑지만 따뜻하고, 어둡지만 밝은 젊은 두 예술가를 만나보자.

Futuristic groovers
Composed of singer-songwriting Colde and producer 0channel, offonoff is part of Dean's hip-hop crew Club Eskimo, which also includes singer-songwriters like Crush and Miso. Since their dreamy debut Mood launched on Soundcloud in 2015, the talented duo has enjoyed increasing popularity among futuristic music lovers. Recently recruited by Tablo's indie label HIGHGRND, they stay true to their raw music style and reveal people's innermost thoughts and emotions in their first full-length album boy.

Love is the primary theme of this album. Comparing smoking to an addictive love, offonoff, Miso and Tablo capture the dreaminess and bittersweetness of a fleeting love in Cigarette (Track 2). Miso's soulful voice and Colde's low-register vocals create an attractively hazy mood for the song. offonoff's ambient sound is mainly exhibited in their laid-back melodies and soulful arrangements. However, in boy. (Track 5), Colde shows their dreamy vibe through his romantic lyrics that work magic with 0channel's atmospheric synth-driven tune: "I'm going to find you now / I still don't want to know how to stop loving you / Shoes that take us to a nice place / Let's run away from hardships, over the moon."

Apart from love, offonoff also reflects on their career in this album. Different from other tracks that start with eerie synth openings, Gold featuring Dean (Track 3) kicks off with a woman speaking followed by a wave of laughter. The groovy piano riffs take listeners away from the crowd and lead them to a comfortable place filled with airy vocal harmonization. Rather than going mainstream, the duo takes pride in experimental styles and expresses hope for their future in the indie music scene: "I go to a desert place / I don't need to care about what the others think / The sky is so gold because of the sunset / The shining necklace and future are so gold, so gold."

Regardless of themes, offonoff's songs always have a dark, depressing tone that evokes listeners' introspective loneliness. Their rhythmically driven ballads beautifully depict the feelings of solitude and despair through simple drumbeats, compelling synth chords and soft vocal harmonization. Giving a poetic insight into natural features such as clouds, sea and sky, offonoff guides people to inner peace in the soothing boy.
