Today we are pleased to team up with the great up and coming duo OHTWO for the premiere of his new music video for “Trust Me,” featuring frenzy visuals with an appealing editing work that’s both style and substance to the point of even enhancing the lyrics.
OHTWO describe themselves as a post-pop duo, but a simple question may explain their headspace more directly: what if Interpol’s Turn On The Bright Lights was made by Gucci Mane?
Ohtwo’s BYSON and Faust formed in 2017 and quickly gained notoriety in Florida’s underground scene with such lines of experimental thinking, fusing their love of post-punk and trap into cohesivity. Named after the closing track on Interpol’s Antics, A Time To Be So Small is both a reintroduction and a culmination for the duo, encapsulating their eclectic sound while providing a lane for some of Faust’s most lurid storytelling yet.
As a result, Small feels likea fittingly downcast document of the COVID-19 age, which makes sense given the duo completed production as the pandemic’s first cases began popping up stateside. Simultaneously insular and looking to the world to answer for heartbreak and hardship, A Time is the duo’s clearest encapsulation of their post-pop sound while continuing to push their own boundaries as artists.
“The goal of this album is to reject modern pop themes and deconstruct them,” the duo elaborate in a statement. “In that process, we want to bridge a gap between somber and introspective music through the lens of trap.”
