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
Equal parts dark enchantment and artful melancholy, the debut EP by Brooklyn-based Selebrities dances between angular synthpop and New Wave atmospherics to distill a sense of captivating lustre.
Ladies Man Effect sees each component of the band's sound work with precision to create a world where dashingly voguish 'summertime gothic' electronic-pop mingles freely with the neon imagination of 1980's New York. Maria Usbeck sings at the point where Siouxsie meets Sarah Cracknell atop intelligently crafted guitar and bass work by Jer Robert Paulin, and the stark, resonant production of Max Peterson.
