Taking a break from wondering why Skid Row is putting out something called “The Gang’s All Here” when that is clearly not the case to pivot to telling you about some cool prog metal from China. Progressive metal quartet OU (pronunciation: “O”) have announced that their debut album ‘one’ will be out on May 6th, 2022 on InsideOutMusic. Today, the band are pleased to share the album’s first single titled “Travel.” It leaps from the speakers to spin a world of colorful soundscape visions through the imagination. The band have a tremendous capacity for morphing melody, rhythms and space around them.

Hailing from Beijing, China, the group combine a variety of elements and influences (Devin Townsend, The Gathering, Radiohead to name a few), to create their extremely unique sound.
 
Formed by drummer and songwriter Anthony Vanacore, the idea behind OU came from each member having a long history of playing in local house bands and seeking new challenges in their growth as musicians. Vanacore would go on to recruit talented guitarist and fellow house band veteran Jing Zhang, as well as highly sought-after bassist Chris Cui, with the three of them laying the initial groundwork for the song structure and creative approach. OU recruited highly talented singer Lynn Wu to front the project, who brings with her ethereal vocals that contrast with the dynamic and engaging music, delivering a powerful and soaring sound. On their debut, OU set out with only one clear goal in mind, and that was to make certain that every song had its own unique identity.
