Behind their facepaint and bright attire, Philly seven-piece OhBree are a crew of snappy pop songwriters. The band is about to release its second LP, Death By Broomstick, and today we’re bringing you the premiere of its song “Sweater.” It’s got a bouncy beat, a bright horn section and a slick doo-wop feel that gives way to a gruff, punk-edged refrain – “Nothing makes you better than a sweater on a cold and rainy day.”
You can hear a very evident Man Man influence in OhBree’s unconventional, everything-and-the-kitchen-sink approach to arrangement, but this band also exhibits a fun and carefree retro-rock side that Philly’s leading avant-pop crew only began to hint at with last year’s single “Head On.” Get a download of “Sweater” below, and check out the track listing and album art after the jump. The album is out April 15th on Lillian Records.
