We are proud to share the news that we’ve just signed the incredible Danish band Oh No Ono. Their brilliant, otherworldy psychedelic pop captured our attention in quick fashion, and we are proud to announce that we have just released the first single from their upcoming US debut album “Eggs”, entitled “Swim”, in digital form. The Pitchfork-approved video for “Swim”, directed by Adam Hashemi, is a dark, beautifully-shot (and slightly unsettling) masterpiece and can be seen here:
Oh No Ono is also playing two shows in New York City (their first ever!) in January:
January 27: Mercury Lounge (w/ Bear in Heaven)
January 28: Union Hall
Having seen Oh No Ono perform live, we can tell you with absolute 100% certainty that their live show is mesmerizing – come see this band before they start playing larger venues!
Friendly Fire is releasing “Eggs” throughout North & South America on January 26, 2010 (our friends from Morningside Records and the Leaf Label are putting it out in Denmark and the rest of Europe). This a truly remarkable band and we are absolutely thrilled to have them on our roster! For now, the “Swim” single, in addition to being part of iTunes “Indie Spotlight” this week, is also available (bundled with the video) to purchase on iTunes, eMusic, and other digital retailers for super cheap:
