I’m embarrassed to admit that my ears are just being introduced to the musical creations of Oona Garthwaite and Dave Tweedie. Fate had them meet in Oakland, CA back in 2009 and together they formed Oona. Their latest EP Flying At The Sun consists of six juicy songs, my personal favorite being “Kaleidoscope”. It’s one of those tunes that when in public you’ll keep your cool listening to it, but behind closed doors it will compel your body to do its own little dance. Your speakers will be oozing with retro-pop sounds, colorful guitar chords and the commanding sound of Oona’s voice. You might even sense a hint of nicotine because it’s just that addicting. Stream Flying At The Sun on Spotify and check out Soundcloud to download their song “Weather” for free.
Oh and one more thing… each song is packed with a contagious amount of energy so the best way to listen is with the speakers cranked up to maximum volume. Sorry neighbors, can’t turn down this gem.
