Thee Oh Sees

"Thee Of Sees has been mostly compared to theB-52’s. They’re not too keen on this comparison, as well they shouldn’t be. Thee Oh Sees have a lo-fi electric-acoustic sound that’s usually soaked in reverb, making it as if you can hear and see the exact room they recorded in. It creates a very distinct mood that fits their style, lyrics, and melodies to a tee. 

What most people focus on with them is that Mr. Dwyer is in the band. While it’s certainly a notable quality, the recent band members bring so much more to the table. The earliest recordings are Dwyer’s solo recordings, mostly single instrument/vocal ditties that you can hear him working out. They’re an intimate portrait of John, but without the recent material, the portrait would simply be incomplete.

With the addition of Brigid Dawson, Petey Dammit, and Mike Shoun the sound has grown into the landscape that one man couldn’t create alone. Brigid’s soprano voice brings an almost hauntingly sensitive aspect to the lyrics and melodies, while Petey and Shoun complete the frame in its entirety. " ~
