Location: Melbourne, Australia
Members: Oh Pep! are Olivia ‘Liv’ Hally and Pepita ‘Pep’ Emmerichs, who are in their early twenties.
For those who like: Lake Street Dive, Teenage Love, Lucius
Our take: Obviously, if a song makes it on the Weekend Showcase, we’re really digging it. Some songs more than others. “The Race” by Melbourne duo Oh Pep! is one that has been spinning non-stop. On this single, Hally and Emmerichs demonstrate a wonderful feel for creating catchy but clever melodies mixed in with stripped down but pulsating rhythms. The combination of bubble-gum pop and folk also is brilliant, resulting in a little ditty that will have listeners gyrating (but not twerking).
What’s next: “The Race” is the lead single from Oh Pep!’s forthcoming EP, Living. It comes out August 21 via The Star House Collective. Pre-order it here.
Weekend Showcase Edition: July 10, 2015
