Signed to ever reliable Canadian imprint Constellations, Montreal based (but not Montreal born) group Ought made a sizeable dent earlier this year.
The band's debut album – lauded with a 9/10 review in these very pages – was a terrific introduction, packed with wit and daring, off kilter riffing and heroic vocals.
Since then, Ought have been able to play a handful of UK shows, demonstrating their ample prowess as a live unit.
Follow up EP 'Once More With Feeling' is out now, and it continues their golden run. Reviewed by Clash Online Editor Mike Diver, the EP demonstrates "the purest joy of Ought’s music: it sounds like it could fall apart at any time, that every second of its existence is a precarious balancing act between raw passion and remarkable poise."
Posted online, you can put this to the test by listening for yourself.
Check it out below.
Ought have confirmed the following shows:
15 Leeds Brudenell Social Club
16 Glasgow CCA
17 Dublin Workman’s Club
18 Manchester Sound Control
