LA Priest is guy who makes some seriously unusual music. However, there’s no real sense of being too out there. Especially for a song like “Oino”; it’s not a challenging listen or anything like that.
“Oino” is taken off the 2015 album Inji, where it sits alongside a varied mix of electronic sounds.
Even the song itself is a mish mash of different styles, with the electric guitar solo nestled among some funky synths, and the soulful, reverb-y vocals.
There’s a wonky feel to the proceedings, with the drums and main melody staggering about drunkenly. At the same time, the song does have a pop vibe, in its own spaced out way. It’s catchy stuff, and perfectly suited to floating about on a lilo.
The song was the debut single from the album, showcasing the eclecticism of the whole thing.
All the labels and adjectives in the world don’t do it justice…
