OX4: Dana

OX4 are a noise pop quartet from Jerusalem. They are a prolific lot and they have just finished their third EP Where Is My Rainbow, which will be released on October 2. Its predecessor Dana was released in March this year and find them exploring the darker niches of post rock and shoegaze.

Lead singer Michal Dar adds a bit of light to rather dense music that evolves around the fuzz heavy guitar outbursts of Johnny Lawrence. It's the rhythm section however that puts them on the map. Bass player O. Furr and drummer Dave Hamnahem are not about to be drowned by the guy wielding the six string. It could have turned into a nasty trainwreck, but OX4 sound tight and in control for a group who were founded only a year ago. Tracks like Reflections and Sugar Fix contain more ideas than many full-length.
