Drawing from acts as diverse as Ludacris, Britney Spears, and Broadcast, oOoOO marries hip-hop-influenced beats with pop melodies and experimental sounds.
“What Burial is to rave, oOoOO seems to be for relationship. These songs are the ghosts of love affairs and the spectres of sex and we should be celebrating this for what it is: a strange, emotionally unsettling model of pop music that is high on melody, atmosphere and subtle drama.” – FACT MAGAZINE
“Like the Knife, Salem or Glass Candy, oOoOO stand at the strange crossroads between sanctity and sex.” – xxjfg
“oOoOO opens timelines between Hypnagogic Pop and the present. And it turns it back to the edit, the cut up, still the best defense against the war on culture, still as beautiful as a safety pin through the face of the queen.” – The Wire

These girls have more in common with Gangsta Boo and La Chat than they ever will with the White Girl Mob. They’re young and beautiful, devastatingly frail looking girls from Tennessee, who just happen to cover themselves up in blood and perform on stage while seemingly writhing in pain. Their approach to rapping is is far more atmospheric, relying on the overlying dark elements and the tension their production creates in order to further enhance their macabre themes. At the same time, they’re completely human—exposing their emotions in a manner that only makes them more threatening to whatever man wrongs them.
