“This volatile group of songwriters is all about shenanigans… so infectiously poppy that they almost come across as unserious, but it takes a peculiar kind of dedication to pull off a band of this magnitude.” –Consequence of Sound
“Once again OhBree prove that they are unique, not in competition with any other artist but themselves… [They have] created a piece of musical art that is worth a listen.” – Music Existence

So You Want To Store Your Silly Soul?
Art by Joshua Didriksen — Story By OhBree
“We just want folks to know that removing your soul from your body is relatively easy.” explains OhBree frontman Andrew Scott in a joking and sarcastic tone, “And it has only a handful of negative consequences compared to stuff like eating Buffalo Wild Wings or buying shoes with bad arch support.”
Madcap 8-piece indie troupe, OhBree, teamed up with Pancakes and Whiskey this Monday to premiere the “fun-spooky” new single “Skeleton Ave” off their upcoming record Burn Bridges, Burn Pies (Out May 19th). The single was accompanied by illustrations from the upcoming kid’s book So You Want To Store Your Silly Soul? – Written by OhBree and illustrated by the talented photographer, Illustrator, and designer, Joshua Didriksen.
“Skeleton Ave” dives into a cartoonish 60’s groove – topped off with the gritty element of frontman Andrew Scott’s punky, adrenalized melody – following the depressing story of someone down on their luck and frequenting the dark criminal oasis of a street, Skeleton Ave. Meanwhile, the book is a dark and humorous how-to guide for separating your soul from your body. The full set of illustrations will be released alongside the new record as well as in the band’s upcoming video game, Kill The Moon, that is currently in development!

Burn Bridges, Burn Pies has already grabbed the attention of publications like Substream Magazine who described the music as a “piano-driven, roller coaster of fun from start to finish.” It kicks off with a supervillain facet via “Spine” and “Tiny Tethers” – finds haunting and heavy dread on “Square Boxes, Square Thoughts” and “Motivation for a Dying Man” – and taps into the group’s surreal form of silliness with “Skeleton Ave” and “Which Doctor, Witch Doctor?” The whole record features stories influenced by Andrew’s endless consumption of science-fiction and years of playing Dungeons and Dragons (currently a lvl 9 paladin). Most of OhBree’s songs are sung from the perspective of fictional characters created by Andrew – and almost all of those characters are reoccurring throughout the band’s discography.
