There can only be one “Track of the Day” in this here town and unfortunately for Nothankyou that award has already been presented to Eagulls. However, such is the brilliance of this track we wanted to share it with you as soon as possible.
The two tracks that make up the 7 inch single “Know Yourself” and this featured track “Oyster” (available through Moshi Moshi), have already steadily notched up an impressive play count and been praised across the web.
Olga Bell and Tom Vek first met over mid-aughts Myspace during what Tom refers to as “a window of about a week when I was speaking to people over social media”. They kept in touch, seeing each other every few years in Vek’s London or Bell’s New York, until eventually, inevitably, they found themselves at the same Creators Project party in Brazil.
The video for the stunning “Oyster” was directed by Bell and sees her dress up in her counterpart’s distinctive horn-rimmed glasses & slicked back hair.
“Know Yourself” is also available (below) for your perusal…
