Dayton, Ohio has long been an unlikely bastion of top-tier indie rock. Bands like Guided By Voices, The Breeders, and Brainiac put the unassuming industrial town on the radar of college kids and music journalists the world over in the '90s, and it’s been quietly churning out excellent acts ever since. So it should come as no surprise that Dayton can produce a band like Oh Condor.
We are happy to premiere the video for ‘Colors Collapse,’ which plays like a glitchy VHS tape while the song itself holes up somewhere between the unhinged indie rock stylings of Archers Of Loaf and something more jagged that harkens back to Chavez and Jawbox with maybe even some Girls Against Boys injected for good measure.
Oh Condor’s Tim Krug about the song: "This was actually the last song we wrote for the record, and in a way, I feel like it streamlines and repackages a lot of the lyrical and sonic ideas we explore across the album. I like to leave some to imagination, so I won’t get too deep into the lyrics, but it’s all there on the surface: a dash of sci-fi imagery, a pinch of existential crisis, and a few unexpected turns; all the while trying to come to terms with, and even embrace, the internal and external shifts we all encounter as we pass on to new stages in our lives."
‘Colors Collapse’ is taken off the band’s recently released new album ‘Emergency Psychic,’ available now on Blind Rage Records.
