OK Vancouver OK


"OK Vancouver OK prove why they’ve been an indispensable fixture in the West Coast music underground for over a decade. The pleasant rhythm and backing vocals on “Black Part of Light” provide a solid base, counter-balancing the undisciplined lead vocals and whimsical instrumental flourishes. These guys could give a Weird Tuesday clinic" - Mark Anthony Brennan / Ride the Tempo 2016


Ok Vancouver Ok is a Canadian indie rock band formed in Vancouver B.C. in 2004. Described as "anti-capitalist indie music with an environmental message". Do-it-together. DIY. Integrating elements of punk, lo-fi, funk, pop, post punk, folk rock, and avant-garde ideas. The current lineup comprised of Jeff Johnson(lead vocals, guitar, keyboards), KMVP (bass, vocals,) and Laura House (drums). Liza Moser(Bass) is taking a break from live shows to focus on her studies in environment & agriculture, and her new baby. The band has been building a reputation as poetic, thought-provoking and forthright, with captivating live shows.

Ok Vancouver Ok has been compared to, or said to sound similar to, such bands as Talking Heads, The Velvet Underground, Beat Happening, Joy Division, B52's, modest mouse and Daniel Johnston. The band's song 'nature' was covered by Angelo Spencer and released on K records in 2015. This song was taken from the album Escape the Common People (2012), a 220 record pressing in which Johnson painted abstract faces on each of the covers.
