The A&R Department & Cool Perth Nights presents Oh White Mare + special guests.
Oh White Mare had its humble beginnings over lunches at a restaurant in Perth, Western Australia, with the kindred musical spirits & ol’ pals cutting their teeth up in Aussie music legend Snowy Fleet’s attic – fine tuning the beat-based, west coast indie rock sound they’re becoming known for.
When OWM came down from the attic, the band debuted in dive bars and venues around Perth, and from these beginnings came the release of their debut self-titled EP in late 2013. Both the record and exciting live performances received strong reviews, with the band kicking on to release the introspective single ‘All Right’ in 2015.
As the OWM sound blended and evolved, evoking the like of artists such as Josh Homme and Alex Turner – the band wasted no time putting out the stompin’ single ‘Outsiders’ in 2016, which represented the pathway forward for the three-piece, towards a brand new EP entitled ‘All The Modern Lovers’.
Having been integral to the OWM sound since the beginning, Andy Lawson of Perth’s famed Debaser Studios, again took on engineering/mixing duties for the four-track offering. Lead single and opening track ‘Throw Me A Line’ immediately sets off on a soaring string hook. With lyrical content pleading ironic desperation, the propulsive groove and rolling dynamic defines the OWM aesthetic. The title track feels like the band has just stumbled out of the desert, featuring after hours vocals, and hooks oozing that mysterious west coast vibe.
Plus also joining on the night are Jay Wol Johnson & The Humble Bees and Sealamb.
