About Thee Oh Sees
11/34/13: In music circles, it's not often that experimental projects become an outlet for something so much bigger. But that's just what happened for John Dwyer and Thee Oh Sees, which ultimately evolved into a full-size band and a full-time gig.
A project born in San Francisco, California, Thee Oh Sees was Dwyer's outlet for his instrumental home recordings. But today they've become a cohesive unit known for their energetic live shows and capricious visual aesthetic (which often brings together cartoon imagery and horror). Like their sounds and vision evolving over time, the band also changed names and has been known as Orinoka Crash Suite, OCS, Orange County Sound, and The Oh Sees (Ohsees).
What's high on the band's list of accomplishments? Their song "Tidal Wave" was featured in the pool scene of the episode "Salud" (Season 4, Episode 10) of the smash hit television series, "Breaking Bad." Another track, "The Dream," was used for the video game Grand Theft Auto V. Those accomplishments are just the tip of the iceberg for Dwyer and Co., who have seven albums to their name including the latest, "Floating Coffin."
Called "heavier" and "darker" than their previous projects, "Floating Coffin" has also been described by Dwyer as occurring "in the mindset of a world that's perpetually war-ridden." It was released on April 16, 2013 and was praised by one critic who called it "enthusiastic and strange, a perfect good-tie balance of the artfully absurd and the sonically robust."
The release of "Floating Coffin" sparked a US tour with The Blind Shake and Obniis that runs through the middle of November.
