Ooberfuse – March Of The Downtrodden

Ooberfuse are an electronica band from Woolwich, London – Hal and Cherrie, joined with producer Kinky Roland (Marc Almond and Boy George). Ooberfuse navigate secure paths over the wildest oceans and unvisited regions of the human soul. Their songs are audio footprints left behind by people impelled towards invisible things.

This new single uniquely straddles the underground dance scene and pop mainstream; March of the Downtrodden appeals to the broad constituency. Desperation and pain orchestrate the melodies and defiant beats punctuate the song.

In 2013, Ooberfuse participated in the Coffee House Tour with their previous album ‘Seventh Wave’ selling in excess of 2300 physical copies and 2660 digital copies in that year alone. Building on from their success, the band are back with a fantastic new single ahead of their new album to be released later in 2014.

Sister Bliss of Faithless and Axwell from Swedish House Mafia support the track; Tom Robinson from BBC Introducing has played the song twice on his weekly BBC broadcast and DJ Mag have given it the thumbs up saying “the singly shows quirky promise”. In short, March of the Downtrodden is causing something of a stir amongst taste-makers!

Cherrie says: “We are very excited about this single and we really hope you like it. It is a defiant survival cry, rallying those who have been oppressed, to push band and stand up.”

Hal says: “The music video attempts to depict a prisoner trying to break out of his prison cell and flee from all forms of abuse. It’s about a quest for freedom and breakthrough.”

The single will be out on 28th April on Peakflow Records. Distribution by Horus Music Limited.
