Gig & Concert News - O & The Mo Release Debut Album 'In Transit'

O & The Mo Release Debut Album 'In Transit'

16 November 2020 - 0 Comments

O & The Mo are thrilled to release their debut album In Transit this November 19th, which will be followed by a 12 date nationwide tour across the North and South Island.

Songwriting duo Alvin Bartley & Olivia Gallagher wrote, arranged & produced the album from the remote Delaware Bay, Nelson over the winter months. Inspired by the surreal landscape & acoustic qualities of their earth built studio space, the album is a coming of age tribute full of playful romanticism, emotive themes and a deep sense of nostalgia. Working remotely with bandmates, Hugo-Olsen Smith (bass) & Josh Brown (drums) the album was pieced together in Nelson by Liv & Alvin, despite lockdown restrictions.

"We recorded and produced the album over a focused period of 3 months, which gave us an opportunity to immerse ourselves in the recording process, capture our environment and refine our sound. For us, the album is a reflection on the constant state of motion, with a common thread through these songs being to slow down, find calmness and act on your values."

Although the enchanting duo are new on NZ’s indie scene, the pair have been labelled ‘Ones to Watch’ with a busy few months of shows ahead. Their debut single from the album, Pistachio Moon, has made No.2 on the SRN Top 10 charts as well as No.18 on the Official NZ Hot Singles Charts. Their second release Overtired has also gained some recognition from online blogs, including Sniffers.

Meanwhile, their quirky and unique approach to music videos continues to enchant listeners, with their latest video for Pistachio Moon adding to O & The Mo’s blossoming catalogue of short films and music videos.
