A little while back we described Oh, Malô as “one of our city’s brightest new bands, crushing stages everywhere from the rock club circuit to house parties to the Institute of Contemporary Art.” This week, we are beyond excited to welcome the Boston rock quartet to Sound Of Our Town, as they lead a new charge of experimental sounds and styles emanating from our city’s eclectic music scene.
Oh, Malô just wrapped up an eight-month period where they released a three-part EP series — Blue, Red, and Orange — each with a different sonic texture and emotion, and capped off the run with a mash-up cover of Tame Impala’s “Disciples/Cause I’m A Man”, which received love from here on Vanyaland to KEXP in Seattle.
Writes Allston Puddingrecently: “They present a rhythmic and melodic range that swirls between sleepy dreams and monstrous ragers. It seems their music reflects the members own lives. The vocalist [Brandon] Hafetz has been busy juggling his band duties with being president of the entertainment production company, Fitz Ross Productions (known for their Spare Room Sessions). With such formidable operations, how Hafetz manages to maintain his composure is anyone’s guess.”
Music is an outlet, and this week, the outlet is Lawn On D. Sample some of Oh, Malô’s finest material below, but take note: the best is yet to come from this young band on the rise.
