This new track from ‘OhBoy!’ didn’t so much as creep under the radar at GIGsoup, it actually flung the radar across the room and damn-right demanded to be heard. ‘God, Look after the Quiet Kid’ is the first track to be taken from the bands ‘EP#2’ which is set to be released on the 20th October 2014.
It’s a wonderful 3 minutes of distorted pop-rock that has musical swagger all of its own, and is quite easily the hottest track around at the moment. The band are also developing a ever-growing fan-base with their exciting live shows, and their own brand of slacker noise pop, and recently won Lamacq’s roundtable on BBC Radio 6 Music.

After the release of noisy and urgent EP#1, OhBoy! quickly went back into the studio to record EP#2, producing and engineering the tracks themselves in a former mental hospital, now converted into a studio. EP#2 gave OhBoy! the opportunity to take more time, and have greater control on the writing and production. The result is a 3 track EP.
The band are playing The Old Blue Last on 21st October w/Dumb
The track-listing for ‘EP#2’ is as follows…
