Ok Go - Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky

Rating: 8

While there are no obvious indie classics like ‘Get Over It’ or ‘Here It Goes Again’ on this, OK Go’s third studio full-length, ‘Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky’ displays that Damian Kulash and co are perfectly capable of writing more grown-up, experimental material. Perhaps more known for their quirky videos than their music, the four-piece no longer have to rely on treadmills to get noticed. ‘Before The Earth Was Round’ could be placed amongst tracks on Air’s ‘Moon Safari’, while the funky bass, electronics and guitars used elsewhere wouldn’t sound out of place on an MGMT or modern day Beck record. It requires a few listens, but this is interesting stuff.
