One of the best, and maybe most confusing descriptions I've heard to describe Toronto, Canada band, Ohbijou's music is, 'sad and uplifitng'. That might sound odd on the surface, but one listen to the bands new sophomore album, Beacons, and you might better understand. Beacons which came out this past Summer, is a building and sweeping orchestral pop gem, led by hush voiced singer, Casey Mecija, whose songs romanticize the streets and neighborhoods of her home city.
Mecija actually started out as a solo artist, before recruiting her younger sister Jennifer, later expanding the groups sound and arrangements to the now 7-piece ensemble.
