Free Music Friday! Onuini - "Happy Home"

Onuinu is the project of Dorian Duvall. He's been crafting electro pop in Portland, OR for the past few years, where the music community has been watching and waiting for this, his first full length album, Mirror Gazer. Up until now, there's been a release on an Ape Tapes compilation and a video for the catchy "Ice Palace," replete with kaleidoscopic, melted visuals - directed by Andrew Sloan (Tender Loving Empire).

Dorian, a multi-instrumentalist, wrote and produced the album. Jeremy Sherrer (The Gossip, Dandy Warhols, Hockey) co-produced, recorded/mixed the record and played drums.

MP3: "Happy Home" -

Dorian calls the music Disco-Hop and is easy to cite influences like: Yellow Magic Orchestra, Michael Jackson, the Brainfeeder Crew, and Stones Throw Records. The giant chorus of opening track, "Mirror Gazer," the 70s shimmer of "Happy Home," and the roller rink ready "Always Awkward," point to his foundation in the disco, power pop and hip hop worlds.

Onuinu will drop Mirror Gazer via Bladen County on August 21.
