This band came out of nowhere. How is it possible for a debut EP to be in the same territory as heavyweights such as Raein, La Quiete, Via Fondo and Daitro? Those bands spent years perfecting this sound, and ØJNE just comes in dropping bombs like it's nothing. That's fucking huge because I love the 4 aforementioned bands like nobody's business. If you enjoy European-styled screamy hardcore in the least - you know, clean and discordant screamo, then check this out right now. I had a hard time obtaining copies of "Undici/Dodici" for the ZBR distro, but luckily Zegema Beach Records will be helping release the band's new split 7" with Smile To The Wind (Улыбайся Ветру) in mid-2014! When I got in on this split I lost my mind. These bands are so good. ØJNE was in my top 10 EPs of 2013, which you can check out here. The band basically dabbles in the dreamy, slow building and twinkly category with some shouted gang-vocals, showcased in "Ancora" and then switch to the faster, chaotic, screamier style that ØJNE injects with more melody than most, which you can check out in "Naufragio". There's also a fair amount of post-hardcore riffs that remind me a lot of Rainmaker. Get on this, screamo enthusiasts.
