Just outside of New York City, Long Island is home to a thriving music scene. Countless prominent acts have called the island home, from Taking Back Sunday to The Movielife, and there’s a constant buzz about who will be Long Island’s next big thing. If you’ve been paying attention to the indie / punk scene over the past year, chances are you’ve heard about Oso Oso (the newest project of Jade Lilitri) and their most recent album The Yunahon Mixtape, which our critic Joel Funk chose as one of his favorite releases from 2017. Thursday, January 25 marked the first date of Oso Oso’s tour with Tiny Moving Parts and Mom Jeans., and what better way to start the tour than by announcing their signing to Triple Crown Records.

Along with the signing comes the announcement that Triple Crown Records will be reissuing The Yunahon Mixtape this year in advance of new music to come soon. For now, Oso Oso have released a music video for “Reindeer Games”, which can be seen at the top of this post. Created by Trash Head Productions, it’s brightly colored and feels lighthearted, but entirely sincere.

Lilitri says of the signing to Triple Crown, “Can you even believe it? As a fan of music, it’s super exciting to be working with a label that not only has a collection of so many releases I love, but is also engaged and working with exciting young bands who are doing it today. As an artist, it’s beyond exciting to have this kind of backing to allow you to grow/explore and just reach a new potential in what Oso Oso can create. I’m generally stoked on all ends.”
