With their debut album Character Building set for release on October 12, 2018 via Infinite Jest Records, we caught up with Oh800 to try and find out a little bit more about their creativity, passion for music, and more. Cracking jokes throughout, perhaps the boys can chase a career in comedy when they’re not in the studio making music…

Oh800 drop their debut album in October

For those who may be new to your music, how best would you describe your sound?

It’s the sound of one man-child trying to keep a grip on modern life over some uuumphy bass lines.

What challenges have you faced in the music industry so far?

Hmm… The challenge of whether or not to believe anything anybody from the music industry ever says.

How difficult would you say this career path is in terms of making a name for yourself?

I’d have to say very difficult Barbara.

How important is it for you to have creative control over the work you produce?

I’d have to say very important Barbara.

Where do you draw influence and inspiration from for your work?

Anywhere. Dumb s**t I hear people say; inspired things I hear people say. Friendships. Language. Other music.

If you could collaborate with anybody going forward, who would you choose and why?

Annie Lennox. Reckon she’d be a good laugh in the studio and has a serious set of lungs on her.

Tell us a random, funny fact about you that not many people know…

I sometimes buy a Waitrose BLT and stuff it full of those bacon fries things to give it an extra bit of bacon-y wildness and crunch. I feel like it perfectly represents the contradiction of my external middle-class hipster-ness and my true pikey inner core.

Do you have definitive aims or goals for your career?

To be a full-time musician and not have to work any other job.

Where do you hope to be this time next year?

Being a full-time musician and not working any other job.

What should we expect from you in the coming weeks and months?

Our album Character Building is out in October. Some singles before that, one out pretty soon called Want You Around, and a few gigs in the pipeline.
