O.Children To Introduce America To Their Classic Alternative Sound With Their Debut US Single

O.Children release first US single 'Ruins' on Deadly People Recordings on April 19th. Co-produced with Jas Shaw (Simian Mobile Disco)

At 6ft 8" tall, Tobi O'Kandi isn't your average looking lead-man of a four piece London band currently causing a huge stir in Europe. Then again, ?O.Children are a far cry from any other band you might be listening to this Spring...unless of course you're listening to early Cure, The Chameleons, Sisters Of Mercy, Bauhaus, Joy Division or Echo & The Bunnymen right now.

O'Kandi, the bands lead singer and chief songwriter channels the undeniable inner and outer workings of a true front-man, reminiscent of the days when the late and great Joey Ramone and Lux Interior ruled the roosts and during a time when to be a freak was to be truly punk.

What's so special about O.Children -- along with O'Kandi's haunting baritone vocals and stage presence -- is the bands rhthym section, carried by Andi Sleath (drums) and Harry James (bass) who provide a driving and hypnotic darkness that blends so harmoniously with O'Kandi's lead vocals, working in perfect contrast to Gauthier Ajarrista's uplifting, minimal and shoe-gazed guitar playing. With a single such as 'Ruins' to introduce them to the world, it seems these four lads -- still only 19 to 21-- could quite have possibly created one of the most exciting sounds and band to come out in 2010.

Currently finishing their debut album in a Kent countryside studio, and due out this summer.
