OSees, The Croxton, 10th February 2023 by Mary Boukouvalas

OSEES (aka Thee Oh Sees, Oh Sees, OCS, The Oh Sees, etc) returned to Australia off the back of 26th (!) album A Foul Form and a reputation as one of the world’s greatest live acts.

OSEES have transmogrified over time to fit many a moment. Mainstay singer/ guitarist John Dwyer forming the band in 1997 to suit his omnivorous whims; from hushed druggy folk to groovy demonic pop chants to science fictional krautrock expanse and beyond. It’s a formula – or lack of – that has endured them a worldwide cult-following and the enduring love of critics and fans alike.
