Stream: 202’s – ‘Oh My My’
Dublin three piece 202s have been more or less silent since their self-titled debut release in 2009. The first sound they’ve made since then has now arrived in the form of the lush ‘Oh My My’, a hypno-pop chunk of fuzzed vocal harmonies and slowly grooving drums. The track draws influence from across the genre spectrum with plenty of psych-rock and Krautrock sounds embellishing the more contemporary comparisons to the likes of Alt-J or Foals’ more recent output.
With a new album due to drop in Autumn of this year, 202s patient approach to releasing music appears indicative of a “quality over quantity” ethos. When the quality we are getting is like that of ‘Oh My My’ though, the wait seems like it will certainly be worth it.
