O Children Announce UK And European Tour Dates For Spring 2013

Following on from releasing their second album 'Apnea' on Deadly People last Autumn, O Children have announced a run of Spring UK and European shows, kicking off at exclusive Parisian venue Silencio tonight. The band will round off the three week tour with a London date at Brixton Jamm on the 22nd February, full details are below.

Stream the most recent single taken from 'Apnea', 'Yours For You' is three and half minutes of exceptional post-punk with gated synths, shimmering percussion and frontman Tobi O' Kandi's distinctive baritone:

West Coast melodies, 'Apnea' was inspired by a difficult time in Tobi's life where he battled to stay in the UK over unresolved immigration issues from his childhood. 'Apnea' represents a distinct new chapter in the band's career, with O' Kandi taking production influences from a variety of genres. Tobi grew up listening to gospel music and African church choirs as well as the likes of Boney M, Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, Jimmy Cliff, Michael Jackson. And whilst Tobi's distinct voice makes you instantly recognise this is an O Children record, the music has richly developed from their debut, branching out from their gothic rock origins to embrace more expansive krautrock and electronic sounds.
