Published Sep 18, 2015The oOoh Baby Gimme Mores call themselves as a "booty shaking, fist pumping machine built to make you sweat," although they need no introduction, as their reputation for being party-bringers precedes them. In the past year, the Toronto-based quartet unleashed their unruly fusion of punk, rock and R&B on crowds at SXSW, Canadian Music Week, Ottawa Bluesfest, Festival d'été and Osheaga, and now they're charging up to power through sets at POP Montreal and Riot Fest. However, before they bring their electric energy to festival crowds again, we're looking back at their unplugged performance for Exclaim! TV.
We met the OBGMs at Toronto's Bubblegum Studios (formerly Boongi Productions) back in January, where they played a rare acoustic set (with the exception of a keyboard) for our cameras. A previous episode from the session featured a stripped-down rendition of "Paranoid, Paranoia" from their self-titled 2014 release, and now we're revealing "House," another performance from that album.
Although the OBGMs are almost entirely unplugged for this performance, the performance is charged by the band's voltaic energy. A shattering tambourine initiates the song, and it soon swells with acoustic guitar. Singer Densil McFarlane breaks through the rhythmic pounding with powerful vocals, lifting the song to its chorus. Check out the performance in the player below.
