Biography

A beguiling bunch hailing from Bristol – OLO Worms are the self-styled ‘Elastic Waste Band’ – happy to bend and shape, twist and turn in any way they can. These bedroom fantasists and bickering siblings create a ramshackle blend of the sublime and ridiculous. Strange sounds and puzzled words interplay with shuddering beats and bass to produce a unique sound, described as ‘a lounge core Hot Chip’ whose ’sweeping psychedelic soundscapes recall the likes of Panda Bear, moving between spartan atmospherics and fitful noise-baiting.’

Alongside the music, OLO Worms enjoy playing other games. They produce a constant stream of live visuals, videos, artwork and comics as well as running OLO Radio – an on-going podcasting outlet which features regular mixes by the band themselves as well as featured guests that have included Deerhoof, Steve Mason, Field Music and Zun Zun Egui.

Following a debut mini-album on Fence Records in 2007 (available as a free download on the OLO website) and a run of shows supporting the likes of Wild Beasts, Michachu and Adem, they are ready to rumble – with a 7” out on Fence in January 2010 and a full-length album later in the year.

With a fondness for bright lights, bright ideas, and dressing up stupid – OLO Worms are dripping paint in your ear whilst whispering ‘Yard is Open’ – so cup them both and listen close.
