London based Americana duo O&O are one of the most exciting acts in and around the UK country scene at this moment in time and this summer they performed across the country performing to fans at festivals such as Cambridge Folk, Buckle & Boots, and Black Deer. They also fitted in a string of tour dates and radio airplay across the UK including multiple BBC radio appearances.
Now, the fast rising duo consisting of Orian Peled and Obadiah Jones have announced the release of their eagerly anticipated debut EP ‘Truth Comes Out. The long awaited record will be dropping on September 21st and the lead single of the same name, is out now. Along with the title track, this new release features a total of four brand new tracks including previous hit single ‘Tears In The Rain’.
Speaking about their debut EP, O&O say: “This summer has been momentous for us in getting to share our music with new audiences across the UK and we cannot wait to share our debut EP with everyone. This collection of songs came together over five busy months and several trips to Liverpool in the midst of our summer tour. Writing and recording the tracks one by one allowed us to try new writing styles and sounds as each new song was influenced by the ones that came before.”
The British country act also opened up about the title track, saying: “‘Truth Comes Out’ was inspired by the gritty sound we got from plugging Obadiah’s guitar into an old reel-to-reel tape machine that our producer, Alec Brits, has in his studio. That distorted sound led us into the most rocky territory we’ve explored so far and influenced the darker themes of betrayal in the lyrics.”
