New E.P.: Oll Korrect

On Friday 23/11/18, Irish, Indie-Electonica band, 'Ghetto Amaretto', released their new e.p. - ‘Oll Korrect’ - 5-tracks created via the internet, by two bandmates who now live 5,000 kms, and a 5-hour time-difference, apart. Without ever sharing the same room (or continent) since the writing process began five months prior to the release, vocalist Chris Falconer, and instrumentalist & producer, Conor Dalton (Scew), evolved email ex-changes into the 5 new songs that make up the ‘Oll Korrect’ e.p..

The wording has been adopted for the name of this e.p., as it reflects a sarcastic, but hopeful, reflection on the phrase ‘everything is going to be O.K.’ - a sentiment which characterises subjects covered over the course of the 5 songs - including ocean pollution, political unease, and the expanding role of technology - and other things that might you exclaim the phrase...
