Atlanta's O'Brother may seem like a real life version of The Soggy Bottom Boys from O Brother, Where Art Thou? (just Google the band's name), but name and hometown are the only things the band and film have in common. O'Brother uses three intricate guitars to play a combination of sludge, progressive, and ambient rock with melodic vocals along the lines of Thrice's recent experimental material. Not surprisingly, O'Brother cites Thrice as a major influence and recently hit the road with them.
We recently caught up with guitarist Johnny Dang to discuss O'Brother's sound, "Cleanse Me", and what it's like to tour with Thrice.
O'Brother is scheduled to perform Wednesday, March 7, at The Underground in Mesa.
