EOB Earth out April 17th on Capitol Records
“O’Brien’s vocal forays into falsetto don’t necessarily so much betray a carryover of that other big band he’s in so much as highlight his irreplaceable contribution… The fact that they only began practicing four weeks earlier is astonishing, which, from the audience’s point of view in such a close setting, only enhanced the intimacy, witnessing a group of musicians who have been acquainted, and are now really getting to know each other. ‘We’re starting to feel like a band,’ O’Brien said. It’s exciting to imagine what that band will become.”— MXDWN
“The gig was a revelation… The young multiracial, co-ed band answer every modest guitar riff and vocal line like an afternoon tennis match, punctuating vocals, that are often dreamy and sometimes uneasy. But there is a kind of pop wizardry here too: the hooks are concise and repetitive. Ed’s masterful guitar work is deliberately low-key, playing second fiddle. Switching back and forth between electric guitars, modified acoustic guitars and triggers, he pauses occasionally to raise his arms above his head and sing.”—HOT PRESS
“’Brasil’ stretched beyond nine minutes and featured captivating improvisational work by the five-piece band. ‘Shangri-La’ was tautly composed and hooky… a reminder that O’Brien is a co-architect of songs like Radiohead’s ‘Paranoid Android.’”—THE BIG TAKEOVER
