Oso Oso play BK Bazaar on 07.12 + tour with The Hotelier in the fall

Oso Oso play BK Bazaar on 07.12 + tour with The Hotelier in the fall

Long Beach-based oso oso’s new LP the yunahon mixtape is the exact brand of sophisticated indie emo that has been missing from the scene for the past decade. Taking cues from early 2000s staples like Death Cab (specifically, their first few albums), the yunahon mixtape is filled with hints of punk, indie pop, math rock, and more—all of which crystallized through distinctive riffs, fleshed out harmonies, catchy choruses, and emotional lyrics. The production is clean, but not artificial, seemingly retaining the sound quality of an old cassette (just like indicated in the title). They’ve already kicked off a fall tour, and will be playing the Brooklyn Bazaar on July 12th. Listen to our favorite track, "reindeer games," streaming below.  - Lilly Milman
