North Atlantic Oscillation
Stepping away from the hip-hop and back into the indie/electronica – I’ve been meaning to post about this band for weeks, since I came across their name in The Fly Magazine Feb issue.
They got a brief mention in a Summer Camp post last month as they’ve also done a cover of The Flamingos – I Only Have Eyes For You, which is up on their MySpace right now, but this one’s just about them.
The reason I sought out more, specifically, was this track:
Their new album, Grappling Hooks, is out today, 22 March, on KScope and features, my favourites amongst the others, 77 Hours (the not-Engineers mix), I Only Have Eyes For You and Audioplastic (linked but no music at the moment, hopefully after the album release today?)
They’re a trio of lads from Scotland, who don’t sound like Biffy Clyro or We Were Promised Biffy Clyro, I mean We Were Promised Jetpacks, but are a hazy electro cloud of beats, synths and a bit of auto-tune (which seems to not be dead).
Their album launch show is at the Lexington tonight. Support them for £6… go on…
