Kane Strang Shares Official Video For New Single, “Oh So You’re Off I See”

“Strang has a gift for pulling diamonds from the rough” – Pitchfork

Kane Strang’s new video for “Oh So You’re Off I See” is transportive. He and his band bounce back and forth from their practice space, called the Attic in Dunedin, to Central Otago – both in Strang’s home country of New Zealand. For all intents and purposes they seem largely unaware of their gorgeous natural surroundings – I guess that’s what happens when you lock into a groove this good. Throw in a distorted effect made from cuts of glass and you’ve got yourself one disorienting and delightful video.

“Oh So You’re Off I See” is the first single from Strang’s forthcoming album due out later this year on Dead Oceans. Strang’s North American tour kicks off this Friday, March 3rd at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn and takes him to Savannah Stopover, SXSW, Treefort, and more. Strang’s initial SXSW schedule has also been announced. These are his first shows ever outside of New Zealand. A full list of dates is below.

Kane Strang Shares New Single, “Oh So You’re Off I See”

Kane Strang has shared new music for the first time since 2016’s Blue Cheese in the form of “Oh So You’re Off I See.” It’s the first single from the New Zealander’s forthcoming album that he is currently putting the finishing touches on. That record is due out later this year on Dead Oceans.

On “Oh So You’re Off I See,” Strang has moved away from recording in the bedroom to the studio. The song is angular and bright, showcasing his new collaborative approach to recording and writing with his band. The four-piece twists Strang’s melodies upside down and pushes his hooks inside out. We’ve been longtime fans of Strang’s and we’re really excited about having him as part of the DOC family!

Strang’s North American tour kicks off next month at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn and takes him to Savannah Stopover, SXSW and Treefort. These are his first shows ever outside of New Zealand. A full list of dates is below.
