3OH!3 (pronounced three oh three) are the dynamic duo Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte. Streets of Gold is their third studio album and features Don’t Trust Me (which has sold over 115,000 copies in the UK and over 2.7 million in the US!), plus their collaborations with two of pop’s most dashing females, Starstrukk with Katy Perry and My First Kiss with Ke$ha!
We’re big fans of the super dance floor smashing tunes put together by 3OH!3 and even more excited by their stream of collaborations! In celebration of Streets of Gold, we’ve done our best to find out a few lesser known musical facts about 3OH!3...
- Nathaniel is a huge fan of Joanna Newsom, the American singer-songwriter, harpist and pianist
- Sean loves Jimmy Eat World
- Don’t Trust Me, the first 3OH!3 single took 15 months to top the US chart after its release, it then went on to sell 2.6 million copies!
- Sean and Nat sought out producer Greg Kurstin to work with them on Streets of Gold, Greg Kurstin is a bit of a pop music legend, having produced for Lily Allen, Little Boots, Sia, Kylie, Ladyhawke, All Saints and lots more! (They also worked with the producers Matt Squire, Bennny Blanco and Dr Luke on Streets of Gold)
And in their own words (well, Nat’s), here’s what they had to say about the album via their official site www.3oh3music.com;
This album is epic, it has a little piece of everything we like and do. We write and co-produce all our own music, and it was so satisfying to apply all that we learned in the past couple of years.
