It finds them creating a brand of noisy instrumental rock and roll that is up to par with their indie rock peers (Mogwai, Oxes, Don Caballero), as well as exploring their experimental side which owes much to musical pioneers such as Brian Eno, Captain Beefheart, and Can. Dueling guitars and a raucous rhythm section confront the listener with a playful dissonance that slowly evaporates into ethereal melodies built around synthesizers and delicate ambience. Bang Bang finds the band at their strongest yet, having finally come to reside together after years of exchanging tapes and writing songs from a distance. The group have spent the years since their last album touring with such up-and-coming acts as Explosions in the Sky, Six Parts Seven, and Volta Do Mar while also opening for such established bands as US Maple, 764-HERO and American Analog Set. During this constant touring OMA YANG have managed to craft the songs found on Bang Bang, while allowing the skills of record engineer Rafter Roberts (Blackheart Procession, Hot Snakes) room to work within the demanding confines of their complex song structure.
