New Music – Ohmme – Selling Candy
Something sweet below from the Chicago based duo Ohmme. Their new album ‘Fantasize Your Ghost’ is released on June 5th via Joyful Noise Recordings. They’ve released three singles so far and they all have a distinct flavour…
Ohmme – the Chicago-based duo of Sima Cunningham and Macie Stewart – share a new single, “Selling Candy,” and announced rescheduled tour dates for North America, including support shows with Waxahatchee & V. V. Lightbody. “Selling Candy” is the third single they’ve released that appears on their new album, Fantasize Your Ghost, out June 5th digitally on Joyful Noise Recordings. Following “Ghost” and “3 2 4 3″, “Selling Candy” is riveting. The track, which has only six lines, is filled with Cunningham and Stewart’s harmonies, which soar over heavy, sludgy guitar and pummeling percussion. Eventually, the song ends in a noisey freakout.
“‘Selling Candy’ was pieced together from little snapshots of my childhood growing up on my block in Chicago” says Cunnigham. “It felt like its own tiny world where I could explore my imagination, enjoy independence from my parents, and meet all kinds of people, including the pissed off hot dog vendor from whom I bought a boiled hot dog from as often as I could get my hands on a buck.”
