One to Watch: OSOG

Tel Aviv roots rock band OSOG were amongst the many amazing music acts I encountered in 2015 while in Israel. Their enthusiastic, down-home feel could have emerged from anywhere in the States, the glowing music precedes them in much the same way we've seen from acts like Lumineers, Head and the Heart and Monsters of Rock. The band have a new album out shortly, the first single of which Who Who is spotlighted here today.


SOUND CREDITS
Avital Tamir - Vocals, Banjo, Mandolin
Idan Epshtein - Ukulele
David Benjamini - Bass
Asaf Perelmuter - Lap Steel
Erez Shmida - Acoustic Guitar
Omer Ashano - Violin
Guy Fleisher - Drums & Percussion
Einav Har Anan Cohen - Vibraphone
The Hazelnuts - Backing Vocals


The collective will be touring internationally all Spring. Be sure to catch them if you can. (Our friends in Canada, take note, they are coming at you really soon!) The band just released a video for Who Who as well, a cinematic yet dysotopian look (the band dies) at what is otherwise the most-uplifting music. Nothing like art to make you take notice.. Highly recommended, an Artist To Watch!
