Music Montag: OY

by James Glazebrook

We’ve seen some weird shit in Berlin, but someone dragging a medicine ball-sized clump of dreadlocks through the streets? Hardly ever. The short and sweet video for Swiss-Ghanian vocalist Joy Frempong’s “Halleluja Hair” is fun, memorable, and also a pretty good advert for African Beauty Bazaar in Charlottenburg! Currently based in Berlin, the singer’s OY project is a vivid blend of “her kaleidoscopic voice, changing color palettes and variegated textures and styles. All blended together with mechanical utterances from samplers and other sound machines.” You can catch the awesome OY live show at Privatclub this Sunday – get tickets here, and get down!
