Zach Van Hoozer and Ben Flesch are Obliques, a duo founded after the members ran into each other at bars in both New York and Berlin. They aim to create music for the hours between 2AM and 6AM, and “Cut Me Loose (Ill Feeling)” certainly fits the bill. It’s a soulful, easygoing retro rock song that feels ideal for the part of the afterparty when your memories start to blur. Listen below.
Obliques are currently in the midst of what they’re calling the East Village Summer Tour:
08/04 New York, NY @ Elvis Guesthouse with guests: Such Hounds
08/11 New York, NY @ Berlin with guests: Blonder
