Building on (and deconstructing) 15 years of pop-rock smarts, musical friendship, and band-of-the-future innovations, OK Go fearlessly dreams and builds new worlds in a time when creative boundaries have all but dissolved. Formed as a quartet in Chicago in 1998 and relocated to Los Angeles three years later, OK Go (Damian Kulash, Tim Nordwind, Dan Konopka, Andy Ross) have spent their career in a steady state of transformation. Their career includes award-winning videos, New York Times op-eds, a major label split and the establishment of a DIY trans-media mini-empire (Paracadute), collaborations with pioneering dance companies and tech giants, animators and Muppets, and an experiment that encoded their music on actual strands of DNA. Released in the fall 2014 via their own Paracadute/BMG, Hungry Ghosts is the band’s fourth full-length and the newest addition to a curriculum vitae filled with experimentation in a variety of mediums.
OK Go has been honored with a GRAMMY Award, three MTV Video Music Awards (one of them from Japan!), a CLIO, three UK Music Video Awards, two WEBBY Awards (including one for their collaboration with The Muppets and Sesame Street), a spot in a Guggenheim installation, a total of 10 Cannes Lions, and a Smithsonian American Ingenuity Award in the Visual Arts.
