I'm working with OK from Cardiff. Their deceptively clever brand of guitar pop has been gathering a lot of plaudits in the Welsh Capitol. They now release their new single 'Lego' nationwide next Monday (14th of March) watch the hilarious puppet video that accompanies the song below, here's how they made it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?
OK release their new single Lego, which has sparked a massive response grom fans and the Welsh media, as digital download via ITUNES on the 11th of Feb, followed by a limited edition CD release on the 14th of March.
Welsh indie heroes OK release Lego a blast of harmonic sunshine upon a grey music scene, ‘Lego’ showcases OK’s joyous power guitar-pop sound in just under three minutes. The song excels in glistening guitar hooks, disco-filling drum and bass sparring, and heady, addictive vocal refrains that encapsulate a feeling of infatuation, part giddy, part searching for reassurance.“Just tell me if we could fit together /like lego.” Lego is backed by live favourite, the delightful Perfect World.
Lego was recorded by Jordan Andrews at Ripe Fruit studios in Cardiff and mastered by Donal Whelan at Hafod. Lego is the first release from a growing pool of new songs, OK have been working on over the last year, and the first to feature Oli Miles on guitar and Dave Powell on Drums. OK singer and guitarist Joe Paine said,“It was obvious straight away that Lego would be the first single. We were really happy with the way it sounded and are looking forward to people finally hearing it.”
New single Lego is accompanied by a band-produced video, filmed in the band’s own back room, and featuring handmade puppets, gleefully parodying the ecstatic feeling OK generate when playing live.
Despite line up changes within OK since the release of their debut album, 2009’s well-received ‘Under the Weather But Over The Moon,’ OK have held onto their name regardless of its immense impracticalities. “We always loved the name although it's awkward to find us online,” says bass player Adam Barrah, “the band had been going for a while when I joined, so there is a continuity of OK that I love being a part of.’
Lego is the first in a series of releases slated for the coming year. ‘”There are more songs waiting to be recorded” says OK’s Joe Paine, “some of which will be recognisable to people who have seen us live and some of which are completely new and unheard.”
