Speedy Wunderground's O. announce their debut album, WeirdOs

O. – the London-based duo of baritone saxophonist Joe Henwood and drummer Tash Keary – have returned with details of their forthcoming debut album, WeirdOs, alongside a colossal new single, “Green Shirt”.

Coming hot on the heels of last November’s debut EP, SLICE, is the brand new single, "Green Shirt". The band describe the single as “a short rock/metal rinse out. To match the distorted amp sounds coming from Joe, we put Tash's drums through distorted guitar amps on this one. It's named after Tash's favourite green flannel shirt, that was lost several times and then eaten by a dog.”

The single is accompanied by a video taken from the perspective of Speedy Wunderground’s resident pooch Poppy, traversing Streatham High Street and a studio performance by O., before tearing up a green flannel shirt.

“WeirdOs is a dark, heavy album based around our love of riffy basslines, blast beats, dub, noise, and all the weird sounds in between. It was recorded live across 2 weeks in the studio with Dan Carey and aims to replicate the feeling of being at one of our gigs," the band explains.

“We’re just two people making a big sound, unafraid to give it our all when we play. We’re interested in taking it to the limit – it’s something that comes naturally to us," Henwood says. “The album name is inspired by people coming up to us after shows and saying, ‘this feels like music for weirdos,’” Keary laughs. “We listen and jam to lots of different styles of music and it all filters through naturally in our sound – we’re just expressing ourselves.”
