I’ve been a fan of Oh Peas for a couple of years now, so was delighted to learn of Tim’s Rice, her collaboration with Euros Childs (Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci), whose music I’ve been enjoying for, it’s fair to say, a wee bit longer.
The full 4 track EP ‘Mixed Ability Pilates’ (and good naming work on both band name and EP title by the way), is well worth a listen, but ‘Cold’ is my personal favourite. A thing of simple lo-fi beauty, like many Oh Peas songs, with skeletal keyboard and drum backing, and barely a handful of lyrics in the whole song. The highpoint of the song is the two singers combining on the repeated line “and when the clouds clear away from view, leaving only blue”, for which they have discovered a near perfect melody.
Download the ‘Mixed Ability Pilates’ EP from Euros Child’s website, and please do leave a donation while you’re there.
