” … proving his chops as a world-class producer.” – Earmilk
|There has always been a fire burning in the belly of Oh My My and now they’re ready to prove it. Visceral new single ‘Sipping The Bottle’ signals a bold new era for the duo as they offer this first taste of their forthcoming debut EP and announce a new booking agent relationship alongside a clutch of NSW live dates.|
‘Sipping The Bottle’ is a ferocious slice of electronic horrorpop that’s every part of the vivid vision producer Sam Thomlinson had from the moment the song first began to take shape in his head.
“It’s about drinking wine in the middle of a cricket pitch,” he explains, “under a sleeping bag, at 3am, with your ex. Well, at least that’s how it started. Sometimes, I just start singing and the lyrics come out. This was one of those times.”
From there, it grew into into a different kind of beast and Thomlinson enlisted a little help to get it across the line – Timothy, the now permanent vocalist and co-writer for Oh My My, assisted with confronting the story and lyrical themes at hand, while producer Jean-Paul Fung (Last Dinosaurs, Lime Cordiale, Tyne James-Organ, Birds of Tokyo) provided additional production and mixed the track.
The single follows a formative 2019, and now Oh My My can proceed with confidence, now not only by announcing the first signs of their debut EP, but also a run of NSW live shows upon signing with their new booking agent, Poster Child‘s Maddy Smith.
“We’ve been across the Oh My My project for some time now,” Agent Smith explains. “After seeing Sam and Tim’s energy translate live onto stage, it was a very enthusiastic yes from us. We’re absolutely thrilled to be welcoming them to the Poster Child family and are super excited to see them hit the ground running!”
The burgeoning duo join a veritable who’s who on the Poster Child roster, names like Fisher, Airwolf, Odd Mob, Pool Clvb and many more. Oh My My play shows in their home state in the coming weeks, stopping in at Sydney, Newcastle, Cambridge and Cronulla.
