Ostrich – “One Man Band”

“One Man Band” is a fun showing from Ostrich, a group from Liverpool (UK). Fleeting saxophone give way to twinkling keys in an enjoyably expansive intro. A thick bass line joins with baritone lead vocals thereafter, with the ensuing “all my friends are complicated,” rise playing with an infectious dazzle. Aesthetically, I’m fondly reminded of the act Madness. Slithering sax around 02:30 leads a particularly atmospheric bridge, leading into a satiating conclusion. “One Man Band” is a stellar showing from Ostrich, the second of four singles the band recorded in Studio Faust, Prague.

“One Man Band” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2020’ Spotify playlist.
