These people are playing guitars, naked! On a Tuesday! If that’s not enough to whet your lips I know what is – the music’s an experimental blend of acoustic pop that harks at Arcade Fire’s domination of the world while also exposing the band’s back-to-basics style.
Based in Atlanta, Hello Ocho are comprised of stalwart members John Gregg and Chris Yonker, and they can be just as confident in their musical stylings as they clearly are in their physique. Compared elsewhere to Local Natives and White Denim, theirs isn’t an entirely unique direction, but what they do they do well, quadrupling their chances of breaking the UK in the coming month.
Hello Ocho are currently offering a free download of their song “Stickin’ to the Sheets” below.
