Nanami Ozone: Tiny Desert Concert

Welcome to another Tiny Desert Concert — that's when we bring local Arizona bands into the KJZZ studios to play a couple songs for us and talk a bit about the music.

For January, we hear from Nanami Ozone.

Comprised of two guitarists, a bassist and a drummer, the band’s soul is in garage rock, but their sound is a mash of beachy chords that would fit well at any summer party. The band’s members say the ease of their sound comes partially from their friendship, which you can hear in their writing.

The Show started by asking guitarist and vocalist Sophie Opich how they came together.

You can hear all the band's music on their Bandcamp page and stay up to date on their latest news on Facebook.

This performance was filmed at KJZZ's youth media center, SPOT 127.

If you’re in a band or know of one you’d like to hear on air, send us a note at  [email protected].
