Oh White Mare is a new Western Australian band building a reputation for a deep garage and indie rock sound with lyrical storytelling.

Biography

Oh White Mare formed in late 2011 in a Lebanese restaurant in Perth.

Guitarist/vocalist Ross Wood, bassist Craig Bradbury, drummer Sam Hair and guitarist/vocalist Jeremy Balius holed themselves up in Snowy Fleet’s attic for over a year, fine-tuning the deep garage and indie rock sound they’re becoming known for.

The first half of 2013 saw OWM play dive bars and clubs to positive reviews around Perth, and are now making the transition to opening for nationally-touring bands in the latter half of 2013.

OWM has received radio support from Triple J Unearthed Radio, FBi and Valley FM.

Influences include Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Dead Weather, Neutral Milk Hotel and The Brian Jonestown Massacre.

Oh White Mare’s self-titled debut EP is coming soon.

“Definitely a group to keep your sights on.” – Drum Media

Lyrics

Masquerade

Written By: Oh White Mare

Of all the contradictions I love to hate in my life
It's my passive philosophy, but I'm quick to pull a knife
And I rob my best friends, but I give back so much more
So don't call me a charlatan, cause I've heard it all, heard it all before

There are headlines in the hands of all I masquerade to be
With our heart lines as songs, and lifelines out to sea
There are headlines in the hands of all I masquerade to be
With our heart lines as songs, and lifelines out to sea

Like all gamblers in desperation, my instinct is to deceive
All my days they pass my by, assembling infinity
And I always curse wrongdoing, but I always turn a blind eye
You know the deeper that I go the more contradictions I, contradictions I find

There are headlines in the hands of all I masquerade to be
With our heart lines as songs, and lifelines out to sea
There are headlines in the hands of all I masquerade to be
With our heart lines as songs, and lifelines out to sea, lifelines out to sea

Oh My My

Written By: Oh White Mare

Well I had just landed, but you'd left a long time ago
I was stranded, I didn't get it and you were half way home
Then I met a sinner, and I met a pretty girl
And they're showing me a wild reverie, oh my my the falcon and the devilry

The falcon and the devilry
Oh my my well look whose coming after me
The falcon and the devilry

There's a place in my heart that I'm saving for ya
Everywhere I go I've got you on my mind
There's a falcon somewhere in my constitution
Chasing devilry but I'm out of time
There's a place in my heart that I'm saving for ya
Everywhere I go I've got you on my mind
You and me and the devil makes three
Oh my my the falcon and the devilry

The falcon and the devilry
Oh my my well look whose coming after me
The falcon and the devilry

(spoken word)
I'm standing at your gate
And I'm calling out your name
But you don't hear my call
You don't say nothing at all
I'm standing at your gate
And I'm calling out your name

Well I had just landed, but you'd left a long time ago
I was stranded, I didn't get it and you were half way home
Then I met a sinner, and I met a pretty girl
And they're showing me a wild reverie, oh my my the falcon and the devilry
