If you’ve picked up a free copy of NME this morning you may well have seen OhBoy! in their ‘Tracks’ selection, described as “A rabble-rouser that sounds like the soundtrack to every great house party, this is as infectious as indie rock gets”.
You may also have seen them being announced as playing the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury Festival later this month.
Well to end the week we have a brand new video for their latest single ‘A Bird In The Hand’. Its coming out via the ever-brilliant Alcopop Records on June 10th. Check it out below, and feel free to share along with news of their Glastonbury playing and single details should you so fancy (all details on the attached press release):
OhBoy! – A Bird In The Hands
“Exquisitely unhinged DIY sound that is somehow terrifying but infectious all at once.” – Gigwise
“Expect them to take you on a distortion-drenched ride – NME
“Harbours the classic romanticism of all the greatest 80s songwriters beneath its fuzz-pop du jour” – DIY
“Track of the week – and Shock of the New” – Radio X
Since their debut single on Alcopop! set the airwaves aflame in January, generating stacks of Radio 1 and 6 Music play, Radio X Evening Playlist and a personal recommendation from Mr. Steve Lamacq himself – Northampton five piece, OhBoy! return with the upbeat slacker pop anthem for the low in self esteem: ‘A Bird in the Hand’ Mixed by MJ in his Surburban Home Studios‘ this is a taster from their forthcoming debut album expected in Q4 2016.
Alongside a summer full of festivals like The Great Escape, Truck, Camden Rocks, Southsea, Handmade and plenty more as yet to be announced, they’re releasing this new radio jangler on 10th June via all of your favourite digital retailers, and as an awesome, significantly limited edition trucker cap single on the Alcopop! website.
Continuing their tradition for genuinely awesome videos, the new single cuts together some quasi-bizarre footage to create the visual accompaniment to this melodic hit. The band says of the flick, “CSD did a great job of capturing the message of the song. It depicts that struggle just to get through the modern, day to day grind!”
