Israel born and LA based heavy rock artist OHP (OREN HALMUT) has taken the 2017, chart dominating, award winning single, “Shape of You,” and twisted it with his trademark savagery into an inhuman metal banger! With a live music video produced, directed, and edited by the enigmatic artist, OHP’s “Shape of You” trades dancehall-infused pop for vicious guitar riffs, invoking an entirely new appreciation for the original’s themes of lust and longing.
“I really wanted to give Ed Sheeran’s hit a darker, more cutting new shape.” – OHP
