Today’s Track of the Day is a pre-cursor to the very exciting and always interesting Simple Things Festival, which beyond being the last big bash of the year and entertaining Caribou, DFA 1979, Amazing Snkaeheads, Menace Beach and EAGULLS to name a few. But they will also house a funky trio from London called Peluché and their song ‘Ohio’.
As funky as a horn smothered in Stilton this trio brings a little bit of fun to an otherwise gloomy day. Mixing tropical tinges with an effervescent bass line the trio look set to sprinkle your festival day (25th October) with a joyous bounty of bouncing belters.
The video was directed by photographer Jack Taylor Gotch and features a combination of bold primary colour posters and the girls dressed as a mountain range, which only add to the oddness of the video.
There’s nothing odd about the song though, as it breathes a fresh and funky tune, full of witty wordplay and dripping with bounce. It’s the perfect oil to crank those wheels all the way to the weekend.
