what's wrong now?


Well in a way I get what you're trying to convey here, but at other times it really doesn't make any sense. There's a lot of broken sentences, some fragmented ones too, and some of your descriptions are pretty head scratching. The review does make me want to check this out only because I want to hear what this actually sounds like, because the review doesn't really give me a clear indication

oOoOO is something of a mystery. She or it or they or whoever is creating this lo-fi haunted house abstraction may just be a genius.


I know you touch on the apparent "mysterious nature" when you talk about the music later on, but opening with that and kind of dropping of for a minute isn't the best way to start. Second sentence reads awkwardly and is it even needed, really?

Coming at an awkward time I expect comparisons to recent phenomenon How To Dress Well.


Why is it an awkward time?

The merits are there but the approach is different.


Explain these merits

oOoOO is creating symphonic horror with exquisite undertones providing a delicate balance between intimacy and remoteness


Exquisite and intimacy aren't words I'd normally associate with horror, and it probably should read "creating a kind of symphonic horror" or something similar

This isn’t a difficult concept to understand as “Sedsumting” repeats “sound, sound, sound, sound…” ultimately conveying the effervescent goal.


Don't really know if effervescent is the right word when talking about looped vocals over r&b filled grooves that feature everything from "techno" to drone

Whether that goal is achieved with screeching synthesizers gliding serenely across tracks, like a majority of oOoOO employs, or the utilization of more physical instruments both drum and guitar – see the sleek “Hearts”, which provide a rugged backdrop for her voice to soar over.


Bit of a run on and a tad fragmented; you do the equation sentence of "whether that goal is achieved with 'a' or by 'b', but you don't provide the conclusion

Techno is a term not a genre, but that's just me being picky

Its like when someone says "electronica", its just a broad term
