Electro trio Opia plays with our heartstrings with their latest lush and wistful single “Strings Attached” – a buoyantly melancholic piece that has an inevitable nostalgia to it. Tapping into our desire to preserve memories, “Strings Attached” is a laidback and introspective single that blurs the line between the past and present. Stream below:

“We wrote Strings Attached on Martha’s Vineyard after I had read an old folktale about a man tying strings on all of his fingers to remember all the important moments from his life. The sentiment perfectly fit what I was going as I tried to hold onto and make sense of every moment of a past relationship. Time and distance can imbue even the most mundane moments with romantic significance. DJ really liked the idea and the strings metaphor. We started talking about how as we tighten the knots around our fingers to remember, our fingers would gradually lose circulation. The memories inevitably fade and change, and clinging to them can make us numb” shared Opia.

Comprised of Cole Citrenbaum (vocals, guitar), DJ Stanfill (vocals, keys) and Reske (producer). Opia formed when the three met Yale University back in 2016. They broke into the scene with their viral single “Falling,” which hit Spotify Viral Charts and went rocketing on Hype Machine. The three is currently working on their second EP and have some shows coming up:

7/20 – Fortune Sound Club (Vancouver, Canada)

7/21 – Capitol Hill Block Party (Seattle, WA, USA)

7/22 – Holocene (Portland, OR, USA)
