Oliver North Boy Choir Releases Their Complete Works
Since march 2007 Oliver North Boy Choir has released four in their own right, extraordinary and evocative EP’s. ONBC create a musical universe of minimalistic, electronical/acoustic disco, garnished with a steady guitar and a spherical vocal.

With The Massive Oliver North Boy 2007 Girl Collection, the complete works of Oliver North Boy Choir can now be enjoyed as a whole.

Existing only on the world wide web, ONBC is not constrained by the album format, nor by national borders, and has the whole world as their platform. They have been on French and Spanish radio, and the biggest indie radio station i LA, 101,3 FM, are also playing ONBC.

ONBC, consisting of Camilla Florentz, Mikkel Max Hansen and Ivan Petersen, released their first EP, Adrenaline on march 2007. The EP went straight into rotation on Danish national radio P3 and into a #2 on the Indie music chart Barometeret. On May 9th 2007 Shell For the Mourning was released and was also added to the P3 rotation lists and student radios. The third EP, Baby Cool came out on September 9th and was on Soundvenues High Five List. On December 16th 2007 the fourth EP, Blizzard, was released together with the complete works, The Massive Oliver North Boy Choir 2007 Girl Collection.

Danish Reviews (sorry only in Danish)
Soundvenue 7. DECEMBER 2007
5/6
”De små elektroniske popsange er yderst originale, medrivende og velkomponerede med afdæmpede og skæve programmeringer, kælende guitarfigurer og Florentz’s forførende og drømmende vokal. Særligt Adrenaline og Baby Cool er ualmindelig tilfredsstillende bekendtskaber… og så er der kun tilbage at glæde sig til næste elektroniske ladning sange fra den virtuelle trio”.

Gaffa 16. december 2007
4/6
”Man (får) lov at følge udviklingen i ONBC’s køligt sensuelle elektropop fra første parket: Ep for ep bygges der ovenpå, til trioen står med et raffineret og mangefacetteret udtryk.”
