As GvsB‘s Chris observed, SALEM recently featured OoOoO in their interesting entry into the We Make It Good Mix Series. The comparison is translucent: SALEM and OoOoO share an electro-goth/dark-wave style. So far OoOoO’s music feels slightly less gothic than SALEM’s, and has a more distinct guitar presence (see “Seaww” at the 2:11 mark).
I’m actually surprised that I haven’t encountered more artists slipstreaming SALEM’s recent rise in popularity. But if 2010 is actually “gonna be all about despair,” as OoOoO assured Pinglewood, then I imagine the indie-music rhetoricians are going to want to coin a sub-genre more exclusive to the sound/scene than electro-goth/dark-wave… perhaps dark-chillwave?
“Seaww” is the darkest of these 3 OoOoO tracks, but looses a lot of its eariness when the guitar-solo kicks in.
“Mumbai” sounds like it could make a good ‘transitional moment’ on an OoOoO full-length.
If you’re curious, OoOoO completely dismembered Lady Gaga’s “PokerFace” and haunted the Gossip Girl featured “My Egyptian Lover” by Nadiah Oh — thanks to the earliest innovator Get Off The Coast for the remixes.
