This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… Oh Hiroshima June 18, 2016Posted by irishelectionliterature in This Weekend I'll Mostly Be Listening to....
From Sweden, these are a genre that is known as ‘post rock’. It’s funny but I love this genre of music without even knowing it was called post rock. Oh Hiroshima have some great sounds with vocals on some tracks but its vocals to go with the music rather than music to go with the vocals. They have released two albums to date. 2011s “Resistance is futile” and 2015 “In Silence We Yearn”. Both are below in full and really well worth a listen. Their first e.p. “Tomorrow” is here also.
Like most post rock it will take multiple upon multiple listens to explore the aural nooks and crannies. I particularly like the live version of “Holding Rivers” here.
Well worth a listen.
