Brisbane’s Opaeka Delivers Soaring Debut Single “Risk”


Rising indie-pop artist Opaeka has just released his debut single Risk, showcasing plenty of energetic vibes and showcasing his effortlessly natural talent. Produced by Brisbane producer Aidan Hog, Risk sees Opaeka combine his love for melancholic folk and up-beat pop to create one heck of a track.

Risk holds everything you want in an indie hit – fleeting vocals, hard and upbeat drumming, and a catchy melody. Brooding bass guitar is paired with Opaeka’s uplifting tone and heart-melting fluidity, while the dynamism between verse and chorus brings texture to the track.

Risk is about the chasm you jump before a relationship. It’s the raw moment when you tell someone how you feel about them, it’s taking the dive knowing it can go either way,” said Opaeka.

Opaeka, the moniker of Roy Gordon, has only leapt onto the Brisbane music scene this year, but his debut single has put him firmly on our radar. Opaeka has also announced he’ll be dropping his first EP in early 2017, and we can’t wait for it!

If you’re a Brisbane local make sure you catch Opaeka live this month at his first solo show at West End’s ‘Bearded Lady. Until then, plug your headphones in and vibe out to Risk below!
