The OBGMs "Paranoid, Paranoia" on Exclaim! TV
Published Jan 19, 2015The OBGMs (oOohh Baby Gimme Mores) have been on an ongoing high since their rise in popularity this past summer, due in part to their involvement with a nationwide Budweiser ad campaign. The four-piece Toronto indie rock outfit have since been on a tear, recently flooring crowds on a winding Winnebago tour this past summer that included big stops at both New York's AFROPUNK Festival and Budweiser's Made In America showcase in Philadelphia. As a result, the band have become known for their commanding, bottom-heavy and sweaty performances around North America, and are continuing to surpass the hype time and time again.
We met up with the group at Boongi Productions in Toronto to watch the band perform an acoustic rendition of "Paranoid, Paranoia" from their self-titled debut.
Though the performance was a real departure from their normally high-flying act, it was a pleasure to watch the band shape a complete sound out of just a few acoustic instruments, bringing the piano to the forefront and seemingly turning a guitar case into a full-sounding drum kit.
