Here we come with the re-issue of Oh Hiroshima debut “Resistance Is Futile”. There can’t be be any better way to start 2018.
The debut album of Swedish post-rockers, Oh Hiroshima is a pure example of DIY aesthetics. From initial ideas to complete musical product, everything is done by the hands of the band members. Self-released digitally by the band in 2011, Fluttery Records is now finally making the CD-release of the album for the first time.
Oh Hiroshima is a guitar driven post-rock quartet originally from Kristinehamn, Sweden. Through a thoroughly heartfelt sonic output, that manages to mix powerful energetic crescendos with tender melodies and atmospheric vocals, the band marks itself as one to follow.
While short in time span Resistance Is Futile is certainly not lacking in potential for a deep sonic experience where the gamut of human emotions are stretched wide. As a whole the album runs in a constant flow while still showcasing a variety of approaches within the genre. There is building ambient sessions, catchy melodies, sparkling with thick delay, as well as darker sludgy moments. Traveling between hope and despair, calm and storm, and all in between, this is not music for the faint of heart.
