‘O O I A H’
Spawned from Japanese prog-rockers Boredoms, OOIOO are committed to making music that is as vibrant, and unashamedly bonkers, as possible. Led by dynamo Boredoms drummer Yoshimi P-We – who lent her name to and guested on The Flaming Lips’ psychedelic Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots – OOIOO were never going to be a sedate affair. And, let’s put it bluntly, this first single from their sixth album Armonico Hewa is a Marmite track if ever there was one; just a couple of seconds in, you’ll either be dancing with abandon or attempting to rip your own ears off.
‘O O I A H’ finds the four ladies chanting the title like possessed, impossibly chirpy cheerleaders, while a myriad of fluorescent keyboard crashes and ebbing electronic squiggles swirl dizzyingly around them. Put simply, it’s the audio equivalent of a firework – explosive, colourful and wildly, wildly unpredictable. God knows what kind of witchy, tribal voodoo they’re casting in their ecstatic mantra. All you can do is pump up the volume and dance along with them. MP3 after the jump.
