O Children

Named after a Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds track, O Children are the reincarnated musical outfit of previous band Bono Must Die (swiftly abandoned after a lawsuit from the bespectacled man himself). Their music conjures up the ghosts of gloom and the naiads of noir with vague hints of early Joy Division, The Horrors, The National and Jack from The Nightmare Before Christmas. A spoonful of frontman Tobi O’Kandi’s baritone helps the goth-rock go down, so get ready for your dose of good old-fashioned musical melancholy.
