Ohbijou: "Niagara" by wearesolidgold

Metal Meets is the band’s most mature and creative offering to date. Recorded by acclaimed producer Jace Lasek (also of Besnard Lakes fame) in Montreal’s Breakglass Studios, the band (James Bunton, Ryan Carley, Anissa Hart, Heather Kirby, Jenny Mecija and Casey Mecija) present an album that cements their status as one of Canada’s most innovative groups. Taking inspiration from territories traversed outside of familiar realms was invaluable and led to Ohbijou producing a thoughtful and experimental record. In Metal Meets listeners will hear the band realign their sound, using delays, distortions and reverbs to capture a more pensive and experimental relationship with their music. This is an album that will draw new audiences while expressing commitment to devoted fans.

The band has shared the stage with the likes of Bright Eyes, Sarah Harmer, Great Lake Swimmers and Final Fantasy. They have also taken part in many festivals such as the Arabaki Rock Festival (Japan), End Of The Road Festival (UK), The Great Escape (UK), Electric Picnic (Ireland), Osheaga and recently the Ottawa Jazz Festival.

Keep your ears open for Metal Meets this fall and get ready to discover the next chapter for Ohbijou.
