Oona – Tore My Heart

I’ll admit it up front: I discovered Oona and the fabulous “Tore My Heart” on the real dance show on TV, So You Think You Can Dance. I was excited before the song even came out, because my favorite contestant was in this routine by SYTYCD’s hipster choreographer Sonya Tayeh. Sonya is always coming up with these insanely intricate routines scored by cool music, like CSS and Mirah. Just watch this.

Now, after days of having “Tore My Heart” on repeat, I’ve decided to share this exquisite find. Oona is the music love child of Oona Garthwaite and Dave Tweedie, and hail from the San Francisco-area (Oakland actually, but isn’t that just “the port with all the houses”?) .

A quick glance at their Myspace page, and you can find other demos to listen to, but few hold a light to OONA’s debut single, “Tore My Heart”, which was just released on December 1st, backed with b-side “Forbidden Sky”.

“Tore My Heart” is brought to life by galloping piano, filled with life and bounce. As Oona moves the song along with her luring, powerful voice, layers of percussion, bass and brass are thrown onto the lively keys. The final result is stark and surprisingly sexy.
