OSCILLA - AUGUST 2014

1. Subterfuge
2. Oscilla 
3. Autodidact
4. Oscilla

Oscilla is the imagined swing of our imperfect times. The gait of the invisible beast we embody. Flux and formlessness. It represents a new kind of hope.

The current constellation of The Observatory are vibrations of shifting rhythms, synth bass space, oscillators, and abused guitars. Repetition is at the heart of their riff. Hammering out a certain truth. Noise, rock and melancholy. A society in tumult, divided. Where new forms of oppression are actively met with new strategies of resistance.
