A ROLLING BOIL – OV PAIN NTH ISLAND TOUR

 

Recently signed to It Records and celebrating a new cassette via local imprint, mfmp, Melbourne based expats OV PAIN bring their brooding minimalism to Aotearoa’s North Island for their first run since relocating.

Experimental post-punk. Tarkovsky-esque sci-fi meets free jazz, though from a different mould to the psychedelic, Arkestra-style sonics “sci-fi meets free jazz” may connote. Darker. A brooding intensity. A rolling boil. Save for a distant rumbles, drums and vocals are absent, replaced with a crunching, crackling bed of MS-20 and flights of Minilouge which mingle with layers of saxophone. Comprised of Renée Barrance (Élan Vital) on synthesizers and Tim Player (Opposite Sex) on saxophone, the duo “lay waste to the notion that new possibilities within rock and roll are destined to be staid bloated rituals engineered in pursuit of a cheap buck or a quick fuck.”
