O Children announce album

Releases

O Children

Gothic pop troupe O Children have confirmed the forthcoming release of their second album ‘Apnea’. The successor to the London quartet’s eponymous first LP, the new record was written and recorded just as lead singer Tobi O’Kandi, having inadvertently overstayed his English visa, waged a legal battle to avoid being extradited to Nigeria.

Says Tobi of the LP: “It’s a really personal record. I didn’t write it for anyone else and I think that’s how all music should be made. It’s a very different album but it’s a kind of ‘heart on your sleeve’ record”.

O Children have three live dates listed thus far, the first a Vice party at Leeds’ Nation Of Shopkeepers on 28 Mar. Meanwhile, album aspect ‘PT Cruiser’ is available to stream here:

Tracklisting:

Holy Wood
The Realest
Red Like Fire
Oceanside
PT Cruiser
I Know (You Love Me)
Yours For You
Hate City
Swim
Solid Eyes
Chimera
