O.Children

The band O.Children formed a little over a year ago, by way of Miami, Bordeaux, Durham, and Clare.  They launched their second single, 'Ruins', last night at Hoxton Bar & Grill. The front man Tobi stands at an intimidating 6 foot 8, and with the other three members also as unique in attitude, fashion, and style, it makes for incredible stage presence! With a combination of confidence, talent, and swagger,  this band has taken over East London and is moving onto the world. —Molly Donovan
