OLD is the biscuit amongst the dry cookies – you like it but you have no idea why? It’s pop music that causes the masses to cheer ”Hit the bricks Ainbusk!” (the Gotlandic oldies – Google it) and ”god awful strings” (it is, but in a nice way). With software tones, hardware thought and enough experience to stay awake all night, OLD has entered their own existence. Some can only handle half a song. Some have left gigs early because of work in the morning and some just can’t get enough. OLD might be the most festive salvation army of the 21st century and they invite you to join a tea-party you’ve never seen before.
The first time the world got to hear, the Malmö based band, OLD was with the release of their debut single, Knee Hang Gang, back at the start of 2014. A great big-bouncy party-song “for the party, the after-party andthe party after the after-party” that was also given a fantastic remix by Sandra Mosh. Shortly after that their debut EP, Old Ladies Die Young, arrived.
Then, many shows later, they finally found the time to get together with Emil Isaksson and producer Joakim Lindberg at Studio Möllan, to record a new EP. Named Who’s Who, the EP was unleashed upon the world. The chefs to this soup are plenty. Recorded by Emil Isaksson at Studio Möllan. Co-produced by Cecilia Nordlund, Mixed by Joakim Lindberg. Drums programmed by Aram Zarikian.
So what should you expect from the new OLD EP? Well, their trademark three-part vocals are still there of course, along with Eurythmics synths, thin Ace of Base ‘90s pop sound and a hint of something resembling a psychedelic girl-band. Plus obviously there’s lashings of that OLD-certified uncertainty that has become a staple of both their recordings and their live shows.
Political views of feminism are mediated through humor and art; of course the world feels insecure.
