I Wasn’t Only Thinking About You arrives two years after Oh Pep!’s celebrated debut Stadium Cake, an album as immense and layered as the title might imply.
The duo of Olivia Hally and Pepita Emmerichs have spent the intervening months writing, refining, evolving and perfecting their craft in studios across New York, Nashville, Los Angeles and at home in Melbourne. As if that’s not enough, when they weren’t recording they were performing in multiple tours across the UK, Europe, and North America.
These new songs are charged with the energy of their live shows, carried by propulsive rock rhythms, soaring vocal harmonies and rich orchestral arrangements. Oh Pep! draw on the traditions of country, folk and Americana as much as they pave their own paths through modern pop.
I Wasn’t Only Thinking About You is out October 26 via Village Sounds.
