Do you see pain all around you?
Are you tired of feeling obliged to fight every injustice?
Do you now long for it all to be invisible to you?
The latest official OPD communiqué comes in the form of Invisible To Me / Love Me Again, released both digitally and on limited edition 7" lathe cut clear vinyl, and accompanied by an official video, by Austerity Records.
Invisible To Me sees the OPD's hyper-motivational sound take a darker turn, as searing synthesizers accompany the despairing inner-monologue of a soul losing the fight. Having spent a lifetime tormented by their conscience, seeing pain and injustice at every turn, they have been defeated and now long to be JUST LIKE YOU and asks the question 'Are happy people winning or have they already been defeated?'
The b-side hears Jenna Love, the OPD's newly recruited Goals Liaison Officer, take centre stage on what initially appears to be the sweetest of ditties, Love Me Again. Taking inspiration from 80’s minimalist French pop, its chirpy melody and wafer-thin production conceals its true identity, that of a dystopian love song sung by a deranged populist to their defecting disciples.
It's been a year of unprecedented growth for the Bexhill-on-sea startup, who conducted their very first team building event only in early 2022. In their race to secure market share, since then they have hosted a headline seminar at The Heavenly Social, motivated Truck Festival and been live session guests for John Kennedy on Radio X, having been his 'Hot One' and 'Big One’. Other stand out spikes in productivity include; recruiting support from Craig Charles and Chris Hawkins at BBC Radio 6 Music, continued investment from BBC Introducing, as well as glowing written appraisals across the board. Head office certainly has a lot to reward its employees for at the inaugural OPD Office Xmas party.
OPD Xmas Party – Saturday 10th December – Trinity Townhouse, Hastings.

John Kennedy, Radio X
'A quintessentially British indie-pop act who always impress with their singles.'
Charlie Ashcroft, Amazing Radio
‘Full of socio-political commentary and drum machine magic.’
‘When I was sent this explosive track, I couldn’t get enough of it and left it on repeat.’
‘I suspect their motivational message will be widely distributed in the coming fiscal period, and may well become all-pervasive.’
Brighton and Hove News
'The best put together pop-act since Lady Gaga.'
‘This is another synth-tastic rabble rousing anthem, if you need to feel better about how life is going, smash some OPD on close your eyes and dance like no one is watching.’
‘Guaranteed to help you become the best version of yourself.’
‘A ghastly corporate organisation.’
