“Strang has a gift for pulling diamonds from the rough” – Pitchfork
Kane Strang has shared new music for the first time since 2016’s Blue Cheese in the form of Oh So You’re Off I See. It’s the first single from the New Zealander’s forthcoming album that he is currently putting the finishing touches on. That record is due out later this year on U.S. label Dead Oceans.
On Oh So You’re Off I See, Strang has moved away from the bedroom and into the studio. The song is angular and bright, showcasing his new collaborative approach to recording and writing with his band. The four-piece twists Strang’s melodies upside down and pushes his hooks inside out.
