Sweet Oblique / Press

“THIS BAND is that electrically charged air you feel before a great event...and then they deliver! It's that thrill when you turn the door knob on a magnificent haunted house!”

Rake Flier

“Sweet Oblique may have a sound honed to the 90s rock of yore, but they’re nevertheless a welcome addition to our current scene and a sharp reminder that the decade wasn’t solely comprised of men in oversized t-shirts. Letters to Cleo and Spiderbait dust a healthy dose of attitude onto their music, while bands such as Portishead, Smashing Pumpkins and Jesus & Mary Chain are quoted as inspiration. The sum of these parts is best displayed on their song “Only When I See You”. The band formed in November 2010 and has since been working their local scene, performing rock and alternative venues across Florida. Bassist Matt and drummer Ribeye call the state home, but front woman Angel O0omg hails from Detroit and guitarist pboss from Seattle by way of Ohio.”

“Sweet Oblique oozes feisty charm. Rambunctious vocals interwoven with a big band will grab your attention. A mixture of grunge, pop and rock. Their songs will captivate your ears. Seeing them in person is unforgettable. #Kudos”

“ Superb, tight playing, rich gorgeous vocal work and deep, imaginative songwriting created here...particularly enjoyed the jazzy, shimmering cloudscape of "easy".... ”

“Loving the idealitic whispering vocals of Sweet Oblique. Great stuff. Loving "Easy." Where have u been all our lives:)”

“SWEET OBLIQUE, should rename themselves as SWEET UNIQUE. The Tampa band that formed in 2010 have been making their incredible music presence on the alternative/rock scene. The band has resurrected the 90’s grunge sound and have paired it up with a melodramatic rock vibe. “Only When I See You” is a track that’s classy, dark and seductive and showcases the outstanding lead vocals by Angel Sheppard. It has a distinctive British Rock sound to it. “Easy” is a beautiful piece of music that screams out perfection. It is totally different from the other songs, literally spell binding. “Play to Win” allows singer Angel to show off the vocals that label her as “an amazing vocalist and lyricist.” As well as also having a Nirvana-esque sound to it, other noticeable musical influences come across on this track. It’s potentially the best track on the disc. This is certainly a band to watch out for. I give SWEET OBLIQUE 3/5 stars”

“ How Sweet it is!! The bass and drums are tight. They provide the foundation for pboss' mood-setting guitar work. And of course he tosses in tasty lead licks that seem to come from the deep recesses of the mind, or perhaps....the heart and soul. Drop into the middle of this Angel, with her soft, sensual vocals that can also turn loud and hard with a beat. Melodramatic?......Well, they have good melodies, and the drama Angel lays out seems to be that vast range of feelings and emotions found in "modern world" relationships. Next time down south I need to catch this band live. Get out and watch them lay it out for you! **** 4 stars [5] ”

“I am enjoying the CD, the singer in the group is really special, she reminds me a bit of Stevie Nicks. Also, each musician is tight, particularly drums and guitar. I plan to see you all play live Collage Ybor. ”
