Ought’s debut More Than Any Other Day brought the band sudden and
universal critical acclaim – including high praise from Drowned in
Sound, Exclaim, Rolling Stone, NME, and a Best New Music nod from
Pitchfork. They have been on the road ever since, where their
channeling of passion, politics and charisma consistently connects
with and galvanizes each and every audience. Based in Montreal, Ought
are a thrilling and adventurous quartet, delivering an earnest and
exuberant post-punk: dextrous and exacting while bursting with
propulsive and fluid energy, as indebted to Cap’n Jazz as to Talking
Heads. The band shifts adeptly from sharp angles and stuttering
counterpoint to softer edges and chiming flow, the instrumental
interplay consistently whipsmart, supple and deceptively simple.
Guitarist and vocalist Tim Beeler’s declarative, observational style
ranges from stately, composed oratory to ragged, impassioned yelp, by
turns wide-eyed and worried, but never submitting to cool irony or
emotional detachment. More Than Any Other Day was released by
Constellation on 29 April 2014. The band returned to the studio in
early summer to record updated versions of some older songs and one
new one. The resulting EP, Once More With Feeling…, hit stores 28
October 2014, and the band continues to tour extensively throughout the autumn in North America and Europe
