O. Children is one of those bands whose music is pretty good but whose videos are absolutely hypnotizing. Every person in this band looks troubled, but also like Hedi Slimane models, and lead singer Tobi O'Kandi is probably the most intense music video actor since David Lee Roth. View the dark magic of "Ruins" and "Dead Disco Dancer." The "Ruins" single released this week and one of its remixes, by Jokers of the Scene, takes it from gothy new wave to pretty epic squelchy techno anthem. If you fondly remember the Boys Noize tweak of Feist's "My Moon My Man," this will be right up your alley. Expect to hear it and many other jams when JOTS join Bloody Beetroots, Sinden and others at this ravey looking thing at the Hollywood Palladium.
