Everyone likes a little Ok Go. Now add some Prince and some gritty electronic noise and you have their latest offering from earlier this year, Of the Blue Colour of the Sky. It’s a strange sound, many of you will like it and many of you will hate it. But really, you should at least check it out because it’s sweet! It’s not the pop sound we learned to love from the album Ok Go, but it is the next installment from a band that we know writes good music.
The track “White Knuckles” has been getting radio play, at least in my neck of the woods. It harkens back to the indie pop we are used to more so than the rest of the tracks. There are some good hooks, and some beats, but the overall feel of spaciousness takes over and leaves an air of … well, airiness by the end of the album.
So, at least give Of the Blue Colour of the Sky a try. Ok Go is a group of artists after all, and I’d personally be dissapointed in them if they weren’t trying new things.
