Label: Distiller Records

Viewing 00s R&B through the filter of Holy Oysters’ own psychedelic pop, ‘Methylene Blue’ sounds like nothing else. The track comes from an EP which combines R&B with indie and involved the band throwing a party upon finishing each track, in order to experience the vibrant energy of the music. Sprinkle in touches of jazz, Nintendo beeps and a Morse code message and the Egonomy EP has something for everyone, and is something everyone should have.

‘Methylene Blue’ may appear to be too experimental for its own good, but the band throw in catchy hooks to counteract the psych and in this strange mix of FKA twigs meets the Holydrug Couple. Never has chalk and cheese sounded so good!
