Oh Sweet Nothings
Garage Project music series
Oh Sweet Nothings are a Pōneke-based indie/post-alternative/post-post-punk, 3-sometimes-4-piece rock-n-roll band, known in the local underground music scene for their high-energy live performances and subversive songwriting style. OSN write songs about life, love, shoes and sealions, adding quirky instrumentation (kazoos, maracas, toy recorders, op shop keyboards...) to their take on the classic "guitar band" sound. They are purveyors of whimsical love songs for the depressed and self-obsessed; self-subverting shanties for the self-doubtfuls; and fun, silly adventurous music for the lonely and desperate.
