Pre produced in Melbourne and tightened up in Sydney. There is no other band or sound like this.
Many might aspire to become like OWW, but thankfully they don’t. Their music is totally unique and Alanna’s vocals come from another parallel universe. The band has this knack of starting off gently, then drawing one in with some excellent indie rock, before dropping back gently and slowly to a different tempo.
Their strength lies not just in their music but in their very own compositions that depend upon, and are influenced by, none other than the band itself. Tracks such as Lumiere, Howler and Paradise are not influenced by anybody else and that is what makes this band.
John and Renee are in sync all the time, Georgia adds that mysterious guitar playing (which is almost ethereal when one would least expect it to be so), Andrew on keys and synth brings that dreamlike background all round sound and with Alanna the band is a whole. This is not a joining of individuals but is like a single organism sending musical messages to the universe.
OWW’s sound is so well crafted, without being formulated, that one would think they’d been playing and recording for years; well, they haven’t in that sense, but as individuals they have the music in them and that gives them that sound of experience and longevity.
Slightly, spacey, slightly shoegaze, definitely indie this is a band not to be overlooked.
Buy the EP ‘Moments’ and you’ll never be the same again.
