I’ve always been fond of Tears For Fears’ early 80′s hit Mad World, but my love for the song intensified bountifully when I fell for mind bending cult film Donnie Darko and the depressingly endearing cover of the song that Gary Jules contributed to the movie’s stellar soundtrack. Salt Lake City’s Oh, Be Clever offer up their own version of the song, rendering the song into a delicately winding indie electro soaked, trip hop tinged ballad. Their dusky meandering rendition is wondrous yet filled with melancholy. It’s a beauty of a cover that renews my love for Mad World all over again.

Salt Lake City duo Oh, Be Clever deliver quite the captivating, bewitching experience on their new single River. It’s a spectacular track that showcases the duo’s sound, a blend of indie electro soul and electronic pop. There are moments on River that I’m heavily reminded of Lana Del Rey and recently buzzing band Transviolet, but the track is imbued with a magnificently dramatic and near operatic soulfulness. Oh, Be Clever’s Brittney Shields explains: “This song is about seeking validation in all the wrong places. When we wrote this I was very insecure. I’d do almost anything to get someone to like me. It’s about the feeling you get when you come to terms with your flaws and let go of the baggage holding you back.” Fiery and intense River is perhaps my favorite gripping song from Oh, Be Clever. It’s a free download, here.

Salt Lake City duo Oh, Be Clever compare “drugs" to the high of life and all that is has to offer with their uptempo, catchy second track of 2015, Drugs. With it, they hope to spark a conversation about how great life can be without the use of drugs. Their punchy electronic and alt pop song certainly gives a natural high that requires no such thing. It’s a thumping, fiery song with fierce vocals reminiscent of recently buzzing acts like Alex Winston and Misterwives.

Salt Lake City duo Oh, Be Clever premiered a new ballad, an emotion packed power punch of a tune named My Chest. It’s one of those affecting songs that create a bittersweet taste in the back of the mouth, a burning sensation in the heart, and feeling of something stuck in your throat. And no, I’m not talking about acid reflux. I’m talking about heartache, and it’s oddly so satisfying and wonderful. My Chest is a raw, magnificent single.

For something exceedingly bright and catchy, check out Salt Lake City duo Oh, Be Clever’s new single Tosh. It starts out with always gleeful and endearing whistling, before launching into plenty of sass and electronic alt pop flair. There’s a rocking soulfulness to the driving number, and a sound that reminds me of music by another artist I dig a lot, Alex Winston, but with heavier guitars and a gritty fuzziness that’s powerful and roaring.

Out of Salt Lake City, Utah, comes a new duo named Oh, Be Clever. Lost You is their new commanding single filled with poignant heartbreak and a powerful chorus. It’s a finely balanced anthem that blurs genre lines with its touch of country mixed in with rock spunkiness and electropop synths. Another infectious Oh, Be Clever track is Next To You, which received an amazing melodic house remix treatment from Los Angeles producer Elephante. Find them below.
