OH MY MY – explores dark and carnal aggression with ‘ANIMAL HOUSE’

Recently, music lovers were introduced to Oh My My – the new project from Sydney producer and musician Sam Thomlinson. His debut single, ‘Animal House’, brought together lush electronic soundscapes with a simmering hypnotic vocal just beneath; through it, Oh My My explores animalistic impulses and pulsating human desire.

Now, Oh My My brings these dark and broody themes to the screen, releasing the official music video for ‘Animal House’ this week. Filmed at the Elizabeth Street Warehouse and Monster & Bear in Melbourne, the narrative of the video follows the intrinsic, passionate push and pull between two individuals as they embrace tenderness one moment, and aggressive animalistic the next.Animal House

As Thomlinson explains, the vibe of ‘Animal House’ was expertly brought to life by Brad and Ric from Spilting Films and the crew involved.“I wanted the concept behind the lyrics to be conveyed by two people interacting and aggressively dancing with each other, in this kind of push and pull vibe. …Just like a destructive relationship. Anna McCulla and Alex Warren who feature in the clip put their all into it. It was a massive shoot and a massive effort from everyone involved. I was in complete awe of their direction and professionalism. The arts community is truly an amazing place, it’s so supportive and helpful.”

Along with the release of the music video, Oh My My has unveiled a special remix of ‘Animal House’, deftly crafted by collaborator and vocalist on the original track, Kitrich. A show of great dynamism and sonic knack, the remix of ‘Animal House’ ticks another box for Oh My My moving forward with this exciting piece of music.

“Anyone throw around a NIN with modern touches reference for this one? It’s got that instinctual growl and darkness to it.” Triple J Unearthed, Dave Ruby Howe

“Oh, wow, this is something else. It’s addictive and it completely draws you in. I feel like this goes beyond me, beyond us. I love the concept and the different place this explores”
