Osukaru is a Swedish band from Gothenburg. The band´s sound is
something that sounds to me like a mixture AOR and Old School Hard Rock, with some modern influences. It has great
melodies with a catchy rhythm. This is great music to just have
around you, whatever you are up to at the moment.
There are a great variety in the musical moods of the songs that are
really refreshing.The fact that the band has got 2 lead singers just
broadens that variety musically. I would say that it is almost
brilliant to have one female voice and one male voice, as it brings
a greater depth to the music.
It is all very clever and simple done, in terms of not over doing
things. It is a rather big production with horns and sax in some of
the tracks, but it is not over produced. The core and structure of
the music is still simple. And as said before, simple is almost
always so much better. Very few things get better by over doing
them. Music is surely not one that does. Just to clarify myself,
I´m NOT saying that the band hasn´t put down a lot of work on
the album, that is very easy to hear that they have. I´m just saying
that it is not over done in any way.
The album starts with “Arrows”, a duet with the two singers in
perfect harmony. Second track “Strangled Emotions” has a really
great guitar sound to it that perfectly harmonies with that melody.
And it just continues in this way from song t song. It is a really
great album and if it had been realized any other year I would say
it was a top ten album of the year, but as said so many times
before 2015 is an extraordinarily musical year.
My favorite songs of the album would be “Arrows” and “Tell me
If you like AOR this is an album that you don´t want to
miss out on.
