OHNOVA Release New Single 'Easy Way Out' + EP Release & Tour Dates

Glasgow's OHNOVA have just released their latest single 'Easy Way Out', the second from their upcoming new EP called 'I Can't Sleep' that will be released on 24th May. Easy Way Out follows the first single Banjo Mac, combining a serious message with serious riff, this track ramps up the heavy and showcases a fresh slice of OHNOVA versatility

Paul (vocal/bass) talks about the new single, Easy Way Out:

"Easy Way Out is a bit on an anomaly for us - it's our heaviest track by far but also one of our most melodic. As usual for our music it's about finding the strength to get through anything that life can throw at you. That's what I love about the dark, screamed verse which goes into the soaring melodic chorus. It's the dark that turns to light reminding you that 'we all fall sometimes, but it's all about the climb'."

Easy Way Out is available to purchase and stream at all good outlets, check it out at: iTunes, Spotify, Amazon & Google Play

With the release of the new EP on 24th May, the band explain why 'I Can't Sleep' is so important to them:
"I Can't Sleep is the culmination of a good few years work. We chose these songs because they represent the idea that when life gets you down you need to get back up.

Each song, in it's own way presents a bad situation, but ultimately recognises that you need to fight, move forward and ultimately find the strength to get yourself through. That's what I hope these songs do for the listener because I know that's what rock music has done for us our whole lives.

This is why we make the lighthearted and (in our opinion) funny videos. It's taking the darkness of life and laughing at it. It's the recognition that life isn't all bad, you need to power through the bad to reach the good that will inevitably come around again.".
