Get ready to sing along and get Oh, Be Clever’s new single “Tosh” stuck in your head. The duo’s latest effort showcases their versatility with guitar elements and a more indie rock feel. “Tosh” is now premiering on music blog BlahBlahBlah Science and is streaming on Oh, Be Clever’s Soundcloud.
“‘Tosh’ was written while we were on tour earlier this year,” singer Brittney Shields explained. “We had a break in New Mexico, where we stayed with Cory’s brother whose name happens to be Tosh. Touring in a tiny car together for days on end can be a little grueling, and sometimes the writing process gets a little blocked. When those songs that just sort of “fall out” of your brain happen, you have to roll with it and let the song unfold. It’s a snarky way of telling that person you’re stuck on to pack their bags, so to speak, and get out of your brain so you can move on. Tosh was one of those songs that felt like it dropped right out of our heads, and I have to say it’s one of the most fun songs to perform live.”
Oh, Be Clever blend elements of rock, soul, and electronic music with raw, emotional lyrics that tell stories of love, struggle and empowerment. The enormous voice of singer Brittney Shields combined with the refreshing state of the art sounds of multi instrumentalist Cory Scott Layton come together to create the catchy, upbeat sound that is Oh, Be Clever. The Salt Lake City duo, however, haven’t always enjoyed perfect harmony. Prior to forming Oh, Be Clever, Brittney and Cory were members of separate bands that loathed each other to the point of physical violence. Late one night after a show, a fight broke out in the parking lot between the two bands. Having always admired each other, Shields and Layton fled the scene to create their own music, and Oh, Be Clever was born.
