Watch the video for Pressure’s Gone HERE
Chicago trio ODDITY are gearing up to release their debut album ‘Settle Down’, produced by Steve Albini.
Before its UK release however, you can check out their brand new video for ‘Pressure’s Gone’ below:
Talking of the video, the band say; “Pressure’s Gone was the last song that we wrote for the album and we really felt that the pressure was “gone”. We never thought we would actually have 11 new tracks ready before the recording date and we feel this song really shows how energetic and excited we were to get into the studio.”
The new album out July 29
“Pressure’s Gone has a powerful punch – think a heavier version of Cold War Kids – with a lo-fi edge…” – PureVolume
“Wind me up, push me around, just don’t tell me to settle down.” That’s the sound of singer Oscar Baker’s voice as it pulsates through the title track of Chicago-based alt-rock trio ODDITY’s debut album, Settle Down. Guided by the prolific producer Steve Albini, who steers the band’s sound in line with his own masterful résumé, he pieces together the band’s understanding of their own history, while giving them space to envisage on their own where that history might lead them. “Why fly like a monster, when you’re moving like a dancer,” Baker sings as he inaugurates his listeners to these 11 tracks.
“It’s like having three people in the same body—that’s how connected we are in everything we do,” ODDITY’s Harvey Baker explains as he reveals details about the development process for the album. With squalling guitar riffs that recall the clang and electricity of Queens of the Stone Age and a collection of jammy nods to 70s classics by bands like Led Zeppelin, ODDITY brings a full armoury of noise which pours from the fingers and voices of all three members, creating a mesmeric rock cacophony.
Settle Down is due out July 29, 2016
