Oh Pep! Makes Unpredictable Pop

Melbourne-based band Oh Pep! caught a ton of well-deserved buzz with their 2016 debut album Stadium Cake. The duo wound up on international festival dates and capped off a whirlwind tour by sharing the stage with Billy Bragg at Glastonbury. After taking some time to shake their heads and process it all, Olivia Hally and Pepita Emmerichs are back with a follow-up album called "I Wasn't Only Thinking About You...", which showcases their penchant for unexpected musical choices. Oh Pep! always has a bent note or quirky chord progression up their proverbial sleeve, as you'll hear in this studio performance. They've also got some unconventional source material. Olivia and Pepita explain how the experiences of waiting in line for a social security number and witnessing a particularly spooky snowstorm in New York City both inspired new songs.
