Simply put, O Conqueror is going places.
O Conqueror was formed in early 2012 by songwriter Dustin Doering in Austin, Texas. It has since become a collective endeavor consisting of Justin Green on lead guitar, Mike Fisher, the low man and back up vocals, Pedro Corsetti on skins, and Alex Hartley on the ivories. Immediately after O Conqueror’s second year as an official South by Southwest artist in March of 2014 they began working on their much anticipated sophomore album.
Listeners should expect to hear a similar sound to their highly received debut album, King Me, a melodic journey of catchy brooding hooks folded into ambient folk. Though, on the new album, fans may be pleasantly surprised to hear a sense of maturity in the songwriting and a little more edge with elements of delta blues and psychedelic western. This new material is also coupled with an engaging and inventive live performance, as seen in their video, Raucous Love.
You can catch O Conqueror on Thursday, April 23rd at Lambert’s or you can stream them right here at KUTX!
