ONI Premieres New Song & Official Music Video for ‘Control’

7th June 2024 0 By Jon Deaux

Modern metalcore project,¬†ONI today (7th June) unveiled a brand new single, ‘Control.’ The track comes accompanied by an official music video created by Ben Watanabe (555 Comic). Stream the track here.

The video is the initial episode of an animated series, written by ONI frontman and visionary, Jake Oni, that explores the struggle with oneself. As the main character (Jake) struggles with his demons (ONI), the story of Jake’s battle unfolds. As the episodes/music videos roll out in the coming months, we will see the dystopian world and character development play out as Jake’s journey continues. Stylistically, traditional anime components are woven together with ONI‚Äôs evolving sound. The color palette and aesthetics are inspired by the muted tones of Afro Samurai.

Of the new song, Jake Oni reveals,

This song is definitely some of my best work yet. Josh Gilbert wrote the song with me, and I tracked vocals at my studio in Cayman with Joe McQueen. ‘Control’ has a different vibe than anything I‚Äôve written before in terms of range of vocals. The song tells a story that‚Äôs brought to life in the music video by Ben Watanabe and his team at 555 comic. It was a huge privilege to work with Ben on this project.”

Stay tuned for the next installment in the series very soon.

ONI‘s 3rd full-length album, ‘The Silver Line’ arrived last year to solid critical acclaim and featured the crushing¬†singles¬†Aura (feat.¬†Howard Jones¬†&¬†Josh Gilbert),¬†Silence In A Room Of Lies(feat.¬†Jared Dines),¬†Underneath My Skin(feat.¬†Kellin Quinn) and Silhouette.Produced, mixed¬†and mastered by¬†Spiritbox¬†bassist¬†Josh Gilbert¬†and¬†Joe McQueen¬†(As I Lay Dying, Light The Torch, Bad Wolves), ‘The Silver Line’ pushed the metalcore genre forward into the light of mainstream accessibility with enormous hooks fused with colossal riffs and catchy melodies
