O B 1

Album: Every Now & Then (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is named for the Oberheim OB-1. Multi-instrumentalist Jono Ma explained to Stereogum: "It was probably the first thing that was made for this record, and the title comes from the synth. We actually ended up changing the name later on to adapt to lyrics Gab had written, and then it ended up going back to the first title."
