Amsterdam based singer, songwriter and producer OIJ reveals new visuals for his single “Blinded” Describing “Blinded” as a trip to blinding neon-lit alleys and limitless imagination of crazed Japanese subcultures. OIJ was inspired by his imagination of the Japanese big city nightlife and its excesses. Calling his sound a mix between spacious cinematic soundscapes, bottomless synthesizers and hopeful radiating choruses that create an obscure yet somehow curiously familiar and surprisingly danceable sound.
The first single ‘Blinded’ tells the story of hitting town for a well fueled night out, not knowing where and how to stop yourself. ‘Blinded’ questions this way of escaping the routines of day to day life. It was picked up worldwide on Spotify and reached the 8th place on the Global Viral Charts as well as the 7th place in the US Viral Charts among other countries. On the 30th of July OIJ was proclaimed Serious Talent on 3FM, one of the biggest Dutch radio stations!
