O. Announce Debut Album, Share New Single ‘Green Shirt’

    O. – the London-based duo of baritone saxophonist Joe Henwood and drummer Tash Keary – have announced their debut album, WeirdOs. It arrives June 21 via Speedy Wunderground. To accompany the announcement, they’re sharing the new single ‘Green Shirt’, which you can hear below.

    ‘Green Shirt’ is “a short rock/metal rinse out,” according to the band. “To match the distorted amp sounds coming from Joe, we put Tash’s drums through distorted guitar amps on this one. It’s named after Tash’s favourite green flannel shirt, that was lost several times and then eaten by a dog.”

    Speaking about the LP, which features production from Dan Carey, they said: “WeirdOs is a dark, heavy album based around our love of riffy basslines, blast beats, dub, noise, and all the weird sounds in between. It was recorded live across 2 weeks in the studio with Dan Carey and aims to replicate the feeling of being at one of our gigs.”

    “We’re just two people making a big sound, unafraid to give it our all when we play,” Henwood remarked. “We’re interested in taking it to the limit – it’s something that comes naturally to us.” Keary added, “The album name is inspired by people coming up to us after shows and saying, ‘this feels like music for weirdos.’ We listen and jam to lots of different styles of music and it all filters through naturally in our sound – we’re just expressing ourselves.”
