O.Children have been on the slow burner ever since the release of their self titled debut last year which was quickly followed by a remix album featuring mixes from the likes of The Golden Filter. This has now led onto the release of a short 4 track acoustic EP (July 3 via Deadly People Records) which is a testament to the group's songwriting talents. Instead of sounding bedraggled, they sound as fresh as they did when first heard way back on the original record.

The band are currently writing and recording a second album so, if this is your first O.Children encounter you have plenty of stuff to get through while like me, you wait impatiently with stamping feet for a sniff of new material.
