We are happy to premiere the video for ‘Oh No,’ the latest single to be released by LA’s Compress Collide.
The trio – consisting of Adam Bones, Nate Light, and Brad Dickert – may have met while playing as backing members in ska band Save Ferris, but they have since traded in upstrokes for power chords. Just check out ‘Oh No,’ a power-pop meets punk track that is reminiscent of both The Jam and the Ramones. Both of which we love.
Lyrically, the song deals with burning out on life in the city, set against an all-too-real backdrop of increasing wildfires in the Southland: “LA has finally decided to burn to the ground. The angels told us all to run before the sun went down.”
