Video: Oshwa - 'Old Man Skies'

By Gene Wagendorf III  

  In between making batches of flapjacks and chopping firewood, experimental pop quartet Oshwa found the time to record a music video for "Old Man Skies." The song is the first track released from the band's forthcoming Naked Ally Records release.  Heavy on syncopated rippling and singer Alicia Walter's incandescent chirrup, the tune's almost overwhelming brightness is nicely tempered by deep bass grooves and some timely percussive fits. Smartly resisting the urge to craft an ultra-quirky video to match their distinctive sound, Oshwa let their music make the first impressions in this straight-forward performance video.

The group's new record is slated to drop this summer, but in the meantime you can acquainted with them via their 2012 EP transmissions from the midwest: a real-america tribute, and of course by checking out the video below.
