Oslo Parks – “The Night”

artworks-000085226683-mehl2t-t500x500Oslo Parks is a relatively unknown band indie electronic band from Brighton. They sound similar to Friendly Fires, if Friendly Fires took a dark approach and collaborated with Metronomy and The Arctic Monkeys. There’s a suppressed intensity in their track “The Night,” but doesn’t stay suppressed for too long. The instrumentals are primarily bass propelled, and there’s a classic noir sort of feeling as well as a funky jazz groove in both the melody and the vocals. Their music is focused and incredibly driven, and, sometimes, that simplicity is welcomed. “The Night” is Oslo Park’s second single, their first being “Twin” (another excellent track) which was released last month.
