The success that comes with having a viral music video can sometimes plague a band. But looking beyond their dorky treadmill dance, Of The Blue shows a different side to OK Go’s usual slacker rock. Aptly opening with a track titled ‘WTF?’, you’ll be wondering if this was the same band that did ‘Here It Goes Again’. Beefed up by Flaming Lips producer Dave Fridmann, sunshine acid pop tunes melt with walls of guitars, creating geek psych that should intoxicate jaded Weezer fans.
Listen to: ‘This Too Shall Pass’
If you like this you’ll dig: Flaming Lips, Chester French, Franz Ferdinand, The Hives
