Kane Strang Shares ‘Oh So You’re Off I See’ Before New Album [Stream]

A year after his debut, Blue Cheese, native New Zealander Kane Strang has shared a fresh new single, “Oh So You’re Off I See,” further building upon his effortlessly cool, yet deliberate, soundOnce the song begins, Strang’s voice cuts through the repetitious guitar line, giving way to a deep and dirty bass, and a rough harmony begins to take shape. Liberated by its slight melodic disconnect, “Oh So You’re Off I see” is a perfect example of an unapologetically robust synthesis of vocals, guitar, bass, and drums. Circling around contemplative inquiries about a potential friendship, he asks “Are you in or out? Sweet or sour?” serving up an uncomplicated approach to meeting new people. Strang’s smooth, monotone voice punctuates the fluid instrumental beat that propels the song, his coherent lyrics weaving through the organized chaos as we’re taken along for the ride.

For this first time, Kane Strang will be touring North America this year, and dates can be found here. Strang’s new album will be released later this year via Dead Oceans.
