When asked about their influences, O'Brother responded, "We all consciously or subconsciously think, speak, and act based on what influences us. We look for inspiration to get us through tough times while realizing our past experiences have a stronghold on how we now see the world. If you had the opportunity to sit down and reflect on what you believe and who you have become, your main influences will emerge. Imagine trying to capture this experience. You transcribe it for either your own pleasure or catharsis. Finally, you etch your name into this work that significantly represents a time in your life and release it." This is seriously felt throughout the album. You can hear their influences, yet with their own unique take on things.
When I listed to the Garden Window it reminded me of Tool, Radiohead, Pink Floyd, and Deftones. O'Brother's style has a techno, punk, rock, metal vibe that's high frequency, hypnotic and makes you want to move. Each song has a different style which I love! I can only image what an amazing performance they put on live. You can check out their Facebook page for their tour details. I wish they were coming to NC!
If you are interested in something a little funky, different yet familiar, be sure to check out O'Brother's new album Garden Window. The 11 track album will leave you wanting more! If you like it, come back and tell me! I love sharing new tunes :)
