Noisey has an exclusive new treat from Okenyo and dark synth pop king Andy Bull today, whose own music comes with impeccable melodies and huge pop sensibilities and has reached the Top Five on Hype Machine.
On reworking "Just A Story," Bull says: "It's not an interchangeable voice -- the song wouldn't mean the same thing with just anybody singing it. That's a powerful thing; when somebody has such a definite quality, such a genuine pathos or gravity to it... It kind of leapt out of the speaker at me and grabbed me by the collar."
A new photograph of Okenyo by photographer Romain Duquesne is up exclusively on Noisey today, as well.

"Andy Bull has taken this beaut and reworked it... Throw in a dusty vinyl crackle,
a few finger clicks, more synths, and what you get is this little gem."
