Oyama :: New Track :: Handsome Devil
March 15th, 2017 | News
Oyama are baaack people! For lovers of shoegaze Icelandic style, this band have great vibes making a new sounds just for themselves.
Their brand new track ‘Handsome Devil is a brooding five-minute jam, full of time and space, that might well act as one last wintry soundtrack if the weather holds for long enough.
With subtle hints of Mew’s swelling gaze, and a somewhat dizzying meeting of instrumentation and voice, the new track is indicative of Oyama’s craft, the subtle beginnings giving way to moments of dramatic splendour that seem to leap out of the speakers and soar up and out in to the world. “It’s a song about finding yourself in an environment that is beyond your grasp of understanding,” Úlfur Einarsson says. “Trying to make sense of it and coming to terms with your existence within the space you occupy.”
An impressively stirring moment of escape, you can stream the new track below right now, and catch Oyama at any of the following dates:
15th March – Leeds, Brudenll
16th March – London, Scala
17th March – Leicester, Firebug
