Alby, known artistically as OCCO, is a modern art-pop artist based in Miami, FL, whose songs explore themes of belonging and loneliness, adventure and escapism, and the emotional consequences of modern life. Today, OCCO shares his new single, “Jingle-Jangle Diamond Die,” off his upcoming five-song EP, WORTH IT.

OCCO comments on the track sharing:

“‘Jingle-Jangle Diamond Die’ is a poetic story told through the visually-rich perspective of a (not) crazy person in a (very) crazy world, preparing themselves to blast off into space and leave modernity behind forever. The track is a tender blend of Psych and Folk, woven with an innocent vocal melody and dynamic structural changes to create a sense of adventure and instability.”
