Artist of the Day: Opgave

“There are musical elitists in every genre who boast in their embittered obscurity, underrated talent, and find little complacency lurking in the shadows of their betters. Most are pretentious, some are just ambitious, and few are true artists. Opgave is arguably the latter. Opgave’s tracks are moody and dark, but lightly decorated with a humble, hopeful melody. For the technically acute ears, the backdrop of drumbeats comparable to few (a steady march with a fluid groove that you can’t help but bop your head to), the horns, strings, and other subtle samples pervade a rare mirage of hidden gems. Aesthetically, Opgave is hauntingly beautiful. Their music is indefinable, but it doesn’t reek of the forced effort to be so. Opgave is original by nature. Whether you can appreciate it or not is of course, subjective. But the facts are stubborn things” (, 2010)
