#576: Introducing...Loco Ono

Excellent name aside, London-based Loco Ono are a band that should be on your radar. Harbouring a lo-fi aesthetic (and flirting with almost every genre that entails) what little of the band’s material is available online segues through C86 jangle pop, imposing shoegaze and biting riot grrrl with effortless ease. Rather than causing the material to feel disjointed or fractured however, a heavy fuzz blankets the production of each track, providing an idiosyncratic link between the varying moods.
