Oso Oso - "gb/ol h/nl"

Song of the Day
Hosted by Kevin Cole
Today’s song, featured on The Afternoon Show with Kevin Cole, is "gb/ol h/of" by Oso Oso, a 2018 single on Triple Crown Records.
WRITTEN BY JASMINE ALBERTSON

Long Island band Oso Oso (led by Jade Lilitiri) make indie songs with a touch of early aughts emo for the perfect blend of summery nostalgia. Last year they put out The Yunahon Mixtape, their second album following 2015’s Real Stories of True People, Who Kind of Looked Like Monsters. Early this year, the band signed to New York label Triple Crown Records and plan on reissuing The Yunahon Mixtape. They also released two new singles, “gb/ol h/nf” and “Subside.” The former is the sunnier, more immediate and upbeat track and also today’s song of the day. That jumble of letters and slashes stands for “goodbye old love, hello new friend,” as the songs lyrics tell a story of lovers becoming friends. The song comes with a video by Joel Kirschenbaum. Oso Oso will make a stop in Seattle on their summer tour to play the Crocodile on Thursday, July 19.
