As the resident male vocalist of the Bay Area group Honor Roll Crew, 1-O.A.K takes indie punk band LCD Soundsystem’s “Someone Great” and gives it a slight makeover. In collaboration with the Honor Roll Crew’s producer TrackAdemicks, the duo manages to manifest a sonic throwback sound; the synths add an 80s vibe while 1-O.A.K’s vocals along with with the arrangement adds a modern, soulful touch, especially as the song evolves to the end. Definitely eargasmic!
“Someone Great” is the first single from the duo’s EP full of covers titled “Lovelorn: 2 Player Co-Op” which will drop on Dec. 10 (Singersroom exclusive stream on December 9th). The project follows 1-O.A.K’s debut solo project Special Request.
