Artist Bio:

Rocky O. (guitar, keyboards, vocoder) and Shaun O. (vocals, drums) are the quirky electronic pop duo Oppenheimer. Formed in 2004, the Irish duo made quite a splash in England in 2005 when BBC Radio 1 DJ David Holmes championed their song, "Breakfast in NYC." From there, Oppenheimer went on to perform shows alongside the Chalets and Architecture in Helsinki. A recording contract with Bar/None followed in September, and their self-titled effort arrived in Spring 2006. The 14-song pop gem included a performance by Ash's Tim Wheeler on the song "Orchid." After some time spent touring with They Might Be Giants, Oppenheimer released their second album, Take the Whole Midrange and Boost It, in 2008.[Read More]
