Northampton five piece, OhBoy! pick up where the New Year hangovers have left off, exploding into 2016 full of intent, announcing today that they’ve signed to Alcopop! Records and are out to prove themselves as definitive ones to watch for the year ahead – with the deliciously infectious ‘The Carrot And The Stick’.
Released on February 5th via all of your favourite digital retailers, and as a significantly awesome limited edition Tee Shirt single, the video for the track has to be seen to be believed. A wonderfully cut together montage of classic on-screen footage that accompanies the band’s stand out track of their career so far.
Since forming last year the band have picked up some influential fans including 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq, Tom Ravenscroft, XFM’S John Kennedy, and NME.
Lee irons (guitar), Jay Brook (guitar/vocals), Dan Battison (bass) Meg Amirghiasvand (guitar/backing vocals) and Mark Nicholas (drums). The band are developing a ever-growing fan-base with their exciting live shows, and their own brand of slacker noise pop, and recently won Lamacq’s roundtable on BBC Radio 6 Music, as well as being playlisted on XFM and stacking up a wealth of plays across Radio 1.
Single launch: Alcopopalooza Brixton Windmill // 23rd January
