O+S is the collaboration between Orenda Fink (Azure Ray, Art In Manila) and Scapelist, aka Cedric Lemoyne (Remy Zero). The duo's self-titled debut is mostly a hushed and somber collection of pop songs, letting Fink's vocals echo over Scapelist's sonic crafting.

Subtle complexities are often buried within the songs, like on "We Do What We Want To," which meshes quiet, ethereal keyboard effects with acoustic plucking and guitar feedback, as Fink's airy vocals traverse the song's wide soundscape. Though the various arrangements and atmospherics saturate the songs�witness the clattering wind chimes on "New Life"�Fink's lucid and delicate vocals remain the centerpiece throughout, exploring new territories with bold aplomb as she rediscovers beauty in sadness.
