Don’t Be A Dumbo, Watch The New OhBoy! Video

5th December 2016

Northampton 5-piece OhBoy! are pleased to reveal today their charming new video for their latest single ‘Dirt’, another beautiful slice of fuzzed-up power pop from the quintet that’s shot through with melancholy.

It follows the release of their last single ‘Hey Princess’ which was premiered last month on The 405 and has just been added to Huw Stephens’ Best of BBC Radio 1 Introducing playlist.  Both tracks are out now via Canvasclub (US) and Alcopop (UK).

With an exclusive first look at the video on US music discovery and festival website All Things Go, they said of the visuals: “With Brit-pop sensibilities and that English penchant for the absurd, their debut video for ‘Dirt’ hits right in the gut.

“We follow the daily life of a stoic elephant, trapped in the meat grinding 9-5 life – a cubicle native in search of relief. Wandering into the local pub for an open-mic, he musters up the courage (with a little help from a few pints) to pour out his heart to despondent drunks. It’s catchy and inspirational as hell.”

The band were hand-picked for Glastonbury 2016 by a BBC panel to play their ‘Introducing’ stage and  have racked up plenty of support at UK radio from the likes of Steve Lamacq at BBC6 Music, Huw Stephens at BBCR1 – for whom they recorded a Maida Vale live session – and John Kennedy at Radio X.

“As a band, we’re pretty independent” they explain “we engineer everything ourselves. Jay’s gotten pretty good at sticking a mic on something and pressing the record button. We also write, direct, and co-edit our videos.”
