K&F 012 - Oh Othello – Above The Pretty PDF Print E-mail
Written by Mario   
ImageOh Othello sind George Jephson und Thos Henley, die auf ihrer „Above The Pretty“-Debüt-EP einen harmonieseligen Folk-Pop entwerfen, der dermaßen rund, verspielt und makellos erscheint, wie man ihn sonst nur von Bands wie The Duke & The King, Simon & Garfunkel oder den Byrds kennt. Die beiden Exil-Engländer mit ihren akustischen Gitarren und (im besten Sinne des Wortes) betörenden Hippie-Chören fanden auf einer gemeinsamen Frankreich-Rundreise in einem klapprigen roten Van zwischen Angelruten und Isomatten zusammen und wurden, nach einigen Konzerten in Paris, bald von Kollegen wie den Mystery Jets oder Razorlight auf gemeinsame Tourneen eingeladen. Im Fazit: sechs kleine Songperlen zum Sich-sofort-Reinverlieben, von den Künstlern selbst als „operas in harmony“ beschrieben.

Oh Othello is a new pop folk group consisting of George Jephson and Thos Henley. Two Englishmen whose musical vision is so entwined that their songs become operas in harmony. After bonding over the poetry of Shelley in a musty backstage room they decided to travel France together in a red van, equipped with fishing rods, homemade beds and of course their guitars. Settling in Paris and being asked to support the likes of Mystery Jets, and Razorlight they played their road made pop songs to large audiences. But not as large as the winding avenues of Paris which Oh Othello still play through rain or sun to bring the world their harmony.
