Oh man, the mountain Short Info

In deadlock between a desire to live the Good Life and an irksome feeling of existential dread, Oh man, the mountain are a large alt. folk band from Manchester. At their fullest, a group of eight who try to tread the lines between harmony, discord, melancholy and joy - to create a big, if slightly broken sound. Drawing on influences from roots folk, southern gothic Americana, delta blues and the disassociation from it all that living in a British city tends to bring, their music is not flashy but an honest attempt to express the confusion of living and loving in a broken world.

Their first EP 'Songs of Silt' was released in April 2014, and is a hearty celebration of the natural world and the inevitability of loss and death. Recently described as somewhere between the Dresden Dolls and Seasick Steve, they are moving towards a darker and bluer hue.
