Our Love is Hurting Us is a somewhat frightening EP to listen to as oOoOO effectively conjure a feeling of impending doom that runs through all five tracks. Starting with the ghost vocal keyboards that play up the spooky atmospherics of opening track “TryTry” to the quiet contemplation of “Break Yr Heart”, this definitely isn’t accessible music. Every track features ambient washes and oddly disconcerting (and somewhat disconnected) drum track clicks. The songs as individual pieces work just fine but the collection taken as a whole makes each piece feel more complete within the contextual possibilities. Overall, it’s a strange but very solid release.
