Oh Sees | Photoset

2nd September | O2 Academy

Previously known as OCS, The Ohsees, Thee Oh Sees and The Oh Sees, Oh Sees may have ditched the definite article, but after over twenty years, they are still the definitive live article. With the titles of 2017’s Orc, leading into 2018’s Smote Reverser you can spot their leanings into prog, which suit the dramatics of John Dwyer’s voice.This came through in abundance at The O2 Academy where those who had the pleasure of their company were caught up in their sonic whirlpool, and pinned to the wall by two concurrent drumlines in their garage-rock blitz. Oh rapture. Oh Sees. Jeff Oram managed to stay upright and take photos.
