Northampton 5-piece OhBoy! recently premiered the video for “Dirt”, the B-side to a new single. It follows up “Hey Princess,” which premiered last month. Both tracks are out now via Canvasclub (US) and Alcopop (UK).
Hailing from “a town that was once known the world over for being the home of British shoe manufacturing (the local football team is still know as The Cobblers),” OhBoy spent much of summer ’16 on the road, playing Truck Festival Camden Rocks, The Great Escape, and the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury. Fans of theirs include Steve Lamacq, Huw Stephens and John Kennedy.
“Don’t get me wrong, I’m no chef, but if OhBoy! were a dessert, the recipe would probably be something like this:
1 x carton of Teenage Fanclub;
2 x large spoonfuls of The Pixies;
Just a squeeze of The Lemonheads;
Whisk with a fuzz pedal until thick, then sandwich between Pavement and Yo La
Tengo. Pop it in the fridge overnight, and serve with just a sprinkle of Britpop.”
