74 – Oh Pep!

It’s pretty grey and miserable in Edinburgh at the moment, so I thought it was time for something pretty and shiny to lighten the mood. So here you go.

Hailing from the sun-drenched streets of Melbourne, Oh Pep! are a bright and breezy little indie folk/pop band with a gloriously rich sound that takes in everything from Belle & Sebastian to Arcade Fire and Maximo Park, all with sweet, dreamy vocals that dance over the impressive melodies.

I’m particularly fond of this track – The Race – which has some really intricate movements for a sub-3 minute slice of poppy fun, and has been a staple on my playlist this week.

Again, it’s an Austin 100 find and a damned fine one too. Hope you enjoy it – and the KEXP live version that I found on YouTube too.
