O’o

Album: Touches

Hawaiian endemic bird. Before the species became extinct in the late 1980s, the Ō’Ō was renowned for its delicate song melody and mysterious harmonies. All it takes is a simple search on the internet to hear it, a “cry from the heart” that reaches us and sounds like a reproach. While the unfortunate Ō’Ō is now history, life has only just begun for the French, Spain-based duo, already showered with accolades and awards despite their short career. O’o is about to release “Touche”, a sublime first album. A species went extinct, a musical project was born: “It was while browsing through a list of strange-sounding names that we came across Ō’Ō. It was first his curious spelling in the shape of glasses that caught our eye. When going on youtube we heard the moving song of the last male bird intended for a companion who would not come, it confirmed our choice: it was a nice way to bring it back to life and pay homage to it” says the singer of the group. Victoria Suter met Mathieu Daubigné, her musical partner, in Agen, in southwestern France, where both studied music theory in high school. Victoria moved to Barcelona in 2010; Mathieu joined him there six years later. Their debut EP, ‘Spells’, was released in 2018 – an elaborate and nuanced patchwork of vocals and samples, reminiscent of the vocal style of an artist like Laurie Anderson, with an intro dedicated to the iconic bird. of the band: “Sweet tooth beak. Soft melody peak / Oh O’o, go round and round in circles / Looking for a honeydrop, til you vanish, til you drop”.

Ep: Thumbnails 2

Miniature #2 is a continuation of the Miniature series started in 2020 by Ko Shin Moon. This new EP is a free and respectful exploration of Greek, Turkish and Kurdish repertoires. Ko Shin Moon offers original compositions and reinterpretations of traditional pieces, in collaboration with four artists met in Istanbul and Paris. Each piece develops its own identity between folk, psychedelic rock and synthetic music. The region’s traditional instruments (saz, buzuq, zurna, davul, derbuka) mingle with synthesizers and rhythm boxes. The release of Miniature #2 on June 10, 2022 will be followed by a French and European tour, in summer festivals and in theaters in the fall, produced by AFX. For this tour, Ko Shin Moon realizes its wish to develop as a complete instrumental project with now a drummer and a bass player.
