Australian duo Oh Pep! are sharing the video for “Wanting”, a track from their latest record, Stadium Cake, which spent a few weeks riding CBC Radio 2’s Top 20 chart. The video premiered in the UK via Gold Flake Paint, who called the record “Brilliantly warm, with enough mystical bite to keep you coming back again and again, Stadium Cake is one of the years most compelling pop records.”
Oh Pep!’s Olivia Hally and Pepita Emmerichs are coming to the end of their world tour, having past through Canada earlier this year with Basia Bulat, and stops at the Vancouver Folk Festival and Calgary Folk Festival. The pair will continue on tour through the UK and arrive back home to play the Woodford Folk Festival at the end of the year.
Stadium Cake was recorded in Echo Lake, Nova Scotia in February and August of 2015 with producer, Daniel Ledwell. The band's obsession with good songs, regardless of genre or generation, has led them to write a record with limitless horizons. On first single "Doctor Doctor" Hally sings, "Where is the light, for me it's the darkest night" over a captivating beat, whilst Emmerichs plays a subtly driving and haunting violin line. It's this same light and dark that makes up the tapestry of Stadium Cake and encapsulates the duo’s unique collaboration. It's the yin and yang of their personalities that brings a tension to each unsuspecting pop song.
