If there’s one thing that’s certain, it’s that we at ATH are suckers for some good dream pop. Lucky for us, the folks from Oko Tygra, a four piece out of Denver, have us covered with their new(ish) track, “Ghosts,” which is a slice of dreamy goodness. Instantly, you’re greeted with an infectious bass line, cascading acoustic guitar riffs, and perfectly toned vocals that simply shimmer in the mix. Round everything out with some “ooh-ahhs” during the chorus, and you have the fine tune that you should listen to below. “Ghosts” is taken from the band’s recently released Assistoma LP, which just came out a few weeks back on Grey Market Records. Go listen to the whole thing and pick up a copy of the vinyl on their BandCamp page. It’s clear pink!!!!
The new label on the block, Grey Market, is releasing tons of tunes, and this one from Oko Tygra really caught my ear. There’s this great industrial feel to the track, as if the band recorded it in some industrial warehouse…there’s just a great darkness. But, while the mood is somber, there’s this great pop coming through in the seemingly angelic tones of the vocals. It doesn’t hurt that Jorge Elbrecht of Violens/Lansing Dreiden was behind the board for the recording, continuing the labels run of great hits. This song appears on the band’s Sealegs 7″, available now.
