Delivering a one-two punch that knocks you back to the heyday of MTV’s Alternative Nation, England’s OhBoy! deconstruct the era when every guitar-based band had a chance at stardom on “Beautiful Terrible.”
A loud, melodic and touching backhanded love note, the vocal interplay on “Beautiful Terrible” is akin to reading between the lines of a yearbook signing, the disguised scorn not immediately obvious. Revisiting such passages years or decades later, OhBoy! ensures their scrawl is indecipherable, scratching out any thoughtful reminder of happy days with a wall of dissonant sound.
