Video Premiere: Osees – “Stunner”

| | , , ,

The ever-prolific and constantly frenetic Osees recently announced details for their forthcoming LP, Intercepted Message, scheduled for release on August 18th via In The Red. Following the release of the record’s first two singles, “Intercepted Message” and “Goon,” the band has unveiled their latest track, “Stunner,” accompanied by a music video directed by Matt Yoka.

Throughout their career, Osees have maintained an experimental and adventurous approach, embracing a DIY ethos that resonates with indie music fans. “Stunner” carries their musical legacy forward, exuding the raw and infectious energy evident in the accompanying video. Osees’ music remains a thrilling journey through a psychedelic rock landscape, as they continually push the boundaries of the genre. The inclusion of dual drummers, spastic guitar, and quick-bursting synth work elevates their sound to an entirely new level of punk for 2023!

As John Dwyer wrote of the new single and its accompanying visual:

“‘they’re not so bad for you
all of those drugs you do
and in the future you, find something else to do

they’re looking up to you
you looks so beautiful
sick, fix up in the queue
so, now let’s all review’

Life is a short hot mess
take a breath in the moments when you’re not taking it right in the face
frenetic tunes for scattered times

Matt Yoka came up with the idea of filming us playing the song in our rehearsal space with as many people as we could fit and as many formats as he could stomach.
Hi vis on all the kids
Constricted & claustrophobic just as contemporary routines can be
Noise, obstacle and pointless spectacle
There is no escape!
good luck”
