EDITORS’ NOTES

In the studio this duo from Boulder, Colorado (hence the 303 zip code moniker) specializes in hilarious hip-hop rhyming over cartoonish electronic soundscapes and synthesizers that sound pilfered from early 1990s gangsta rap albums. Following a techno-tinged intro, their second album opens with "PunkBitch," a festival-friendly party anthem that could have been penned by Adam Sandler. "Don't Trust Me" dares to rhyme "vegetarian" with "scared of him" while poking fun at urban hipsters to a sexed-up dance floor chorus that would make Peaches jealous. Similarly tongue-in-cheek is the infectious and minimally arranged "Chokechain" which makes light of tough guys who use pit bulls and rottweilers as testosterone accessories. With all the witty cynicisms that pepper Want, "Still Around" is an anomaly ballad that stands out like a big, beautiful, sore thumb. It weaves minor chord piano notes with a dramatic string section, fitting beats, and emotive lyrics about trying to keep a relationship going in the midst of a successful career as a hit making dipsomaniac.

About 3OH!3

3Oh!3 are a duo from Boulder, Colorado (i.e., area code 303), whose style of music includes jokey raps, indie electronica beats, and lots of tomfoolery. Founded in 2004, the duo is comprised of Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte, who met while attending the University of Colorado. 3OH!3 made their recording debut in 2007 with a self-titled, independently released album. Their second album, Want (2008), was produced by Matt Squire and released by Photo Finish Records. In addition to their album releases, 3Oh!3 are known for their live performances, including a national series of shows on the 2008 Warped Tour. The duo went back into the studio with producer Matt Squire, and in 2010 they released their third album, Streets of Gold. 3Oh!3 returned in 2013 with their fourth studio album, Omens, which featured the single "You're Gonna Love This." In 2016, the band signed with the Fueled by Ramen label, which issued full-length Night Sports. ~ Jason Birchmeier
