ooluu is Davindra, Asa, Pete, and Thi.
Inducing trance states and altered consciousnesses, ooluu wields mysticism, ritualism, and cosmogony through concussive bass, tribal drumming, serrated guitars, and soaring, shrieking vocals.
Forged out of Oompalunatiks, the brainchild of Ignius Shacklebolt, the kernel of ooluu was Asa and Davindra’s meeting through Ignius. Initially a five-piece band, Oompalunatiks was formed early in the summer of 2012. In May 2013, Oompalunatiks rechristened themselves ooluu.
ooluu released their first single and music video, Powder-White, on December 13th, 2013, and their debut EP, Mannequin, on February 14th, 2014.
In the summer of 2014, Davindra, Asa, and Khemavr retreated entirely from live performances to hone their new sound and conceptual oeuvre, OPHUS.
Emerging only briefly in 2015, ooluu began the proceedings for the second cycle, and on January 23rd, 2016, after almost two years of patiently perfecting it, unleashed the OPHUS LP.
ooluu released the ANTEDILUVIAN EP on March 23rd, 2018, with the mixing wizardry of Dave ‘Rave’ Ogilvie (Skinny Puppy, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Carly Rae Jepsen) behind their freshly ferocious, more tribal, more progressive, and more melodic material.
ooluu completed their calamity-conjuring, releasing DILUVIAN on July 26, 2019.
