Oppenheimer – Breakfast in NYC

Now this is a nice surprise, not at all what you’d expect from alternative Ulster. It seems the changing atmosphere up North is at last manifesting itself in a softer edge creeping into the music being produced there. I guess the seeds were sown by Panda Kopanda’s effortless descent into sweet harmonies. Oppenheimer are a duo from Belfast led by the box clever Rocky O’Reilly (sorry). They serve ditties that rely more on electronica rather than plucked chords but they never lose the essence of what it means to be in a band. ‘Breakfast In NYC’ was the first single from the bands eponymous debut released back in June. The single came out as a 7-inch (is it me or does vinyl seem to be on something of a renaissance?) but soon made its way onto the major download sites. Thank God for that as ‘Breakfast In NYC’ deserves a huge audience. From start to finish it is pretty terrific, so imbued with the joys of life it can’t help but lift your mood every time. The only pity here is that it’s so short, clocking in at under 2 and a half minutes. A bright future beckons, let the electric soft parade begin. KD
