OCS share new track ‘The Fool’

‘Memory Of A Cut Off Head’ is out next month.

In late August, just a week after the release of their album ‘Orc’, Oh Sees – once known as Thee Oh Sees – changed their name to OCS, a moniker they last held in 2006.

They also announced plans to release a brand new album, ‘Memory Of A Cut Off Head’, on 17th November. It’ll be the band’s 20th record, and it’s seen John Dwyer writing alongside long-time collaborator Brigid Dawson. Much like the lead, title track, she takes the lead on vocals for the album’s latest cut, ‘The Fool’.

As reported by Stereogum, Dawson said of the track: “On the one hand, it’s a just a simple song about love-lost, about watching your man drive away, and being left behind for his pursuit of the muse, whatever or whoever that may be. When that happens a few times, how foolish it makes you feel. And on the other hand, I was listening to a lot of Jeanne Lee when I was writing, and wanted this song to be an experiment with her sound-singing, no words just shapes and sounds”.
