London based Americana band O&O are set to release their debut EP ‘Truth Comes Out’ this Friday (21st Sep) This comes after an eventful summer performing in festivals throughout the UK including Cambridge Folk Festival, Buckle & Boots and Black Deer Festival, while receiving a noticeable airplay throughout the country radio stations including an appearance at a BBC radio. “This summer has been momentous for us in getting to share our music with new audiences across the UK and we cannot wait to share our debut EP with everyone.”
The international duo -Obadiah Jones who hails from Colorado & Orian Peled from Israel first met at Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) “The shared dream of a career in music led us both halfway across the world to the classrooms of Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA), where we met for the first time.” Opening up with self-titled single ‘Truth Comes Out’ breaks out with a taste of the blues as it builds up to distortion fueled guitar riffs “‘Truth Comes Out’ was inspired by the gritty sound we got from plugging Obadiah’s guitar into an old reel-to-reel tape machine that our producer, Alec Brits, has in his studio”. ‘Tears in The Rain’ previous single which music video premiered in last month’s Bluegrass Situation is a mellow acoustic ballad hums eloquence in a haunting longing tune of a couple apart.
Approaching a darker theme in words and prosperous melodies ‘Saturday Morning’ upgrades to a catchy, rocking tune “That distorted sound led us into the most rocky territory we’ve explored so far and influenced the darker themes of betrayal in the lyrics.” Meanwhile, last track, ‘Rolling On’ sees the table turn with Orian taking lead as Obadiah sing harmony.
As Jim Lauderdale would often say “Now That’s Americana!”
