There is something really unsettling about this video for Oy’s new song “so so.” But as unsettling as it is, I can’t stop watching it. And the more I watch it, the more I love this song.
There are elements of The Strokes—classic songwriting and strained, fuzzy vocals—but executed with a grimy, noisy, loose, DIY mentality.
I asked for a bio on Oy, and this is what I got in return:
Oy is a duo from Gothenburg.
Oy is a neurotic coping mechanism.
