O Children Stream New Single 'Chimera' Out 11th June, Play The Great Escape
“This album deserves all the praise it will undoubtedly receive” Notion
Following on from storming Land of Kings and Camden Crawl shows, O Children are pleased to announce their first single 'Chimera' from their new album will be released 11th June. This is taken from their forthcoming sophomore album 'Apnea'.
‘Chimera’ – the album’s closing track – is a delicately, propulsive track that showcases O Children’s talent for writing compelling, dramatic pop songs that are accentuated by frontman Tobi O’ Kandi’s sonorous vocals.
Taking in krautrock, garage rock, post-punk and West Coast melodies, 'Apnea’ – due June 4th through Deadly People - represents a distinct new chapter in their career, O’ Kandi has taken production influences from a variety of genres and their sound has richly developed from their 2010 debut.
The album also represents the culmination of over 2 years of torturous travails as O’Kandi found himself “essentially stateless, stuck here, a prisoner in England”.
Having played a string of warm up dates for Vice in March, O Children have announced their first full live performances in over 12 months. The quartet will headline Hoxton Bar & Kitchen for their album launch 4th June and will also be playing The Great Escape before making their debut on European shores later this summer.
Upcoming UK dates
O Children are Tobi O'Kandi (vocals), Gauthier Ajarrista (keys), Harry James (bass) and Andrew Sleath (drums).
