OSEES have announced a new LP, Intercepted Message, which is slated to arrive on August 18 via In the Red. Today’s announcement, which coincides with the release of the band’s Live At Levitation (2012), is accompanied by the album’s title track. Check out a video for it below.
John Dwyer shared the following statement on the new album:
A pop record for tired times.
Sugared with bits of shatterproof glass to put more crack in your strap.
At long last, Verse / chorus
A weathered thesaurus
This is Osees bookend sound
Early grade garage pop meets proto-synth punk suicide-repellant
Have a whack at the grass or listen while flat on your ass
Heaps of electronic whirling accelerants to gum up your cheapskate broadband
Social media toilet scrapers unite!
Allow your 24 hour news cycle eyes to squint at this smiling abattoir doorman
You can find your place here at long last
All are welcome
From the get go to the finale …. A distant crackling transmission of 80s synth last-dance-of-the-night tune for your lost loves
Suffering from Politic amnesia?
Bored of AI-generated pop slop?
Then this one is for you, our friends
Wasteland wanderer, stick around.
For fans of Teutonic synth punk and Thee Oh Sees (who the fuck are they?)
OSEES’ last studio album was 2022’s A Foul Form.
