Indie Band Oh Geeez Drops ‘Amphibia’-Inspired ‘Coming Home’ Mixtape

The Milwaukee-based trio releases a collection of 16 songs of family, friends, and fantasy, inspired by the first 16 episodes of Season 3 of Disney’s hit animated series.

Calling all Disney Amphibia fans, Milwaukee-based indie band Oh Geeez has released an all-new collection of foot-tapping content to fill the void during the show’s hiatus. Coming Home – The Mixtape is a collection of 16 songs and instrumentals inspired by the first 16 episodes of Season 3 of the popular animated series, with all the music written, recorded, and produced by the band.

The songs feature a variety of sounds and styles, but center on the show’s universal themes of friendship, regret, and adventure. Oh Geez shares that “from the arena-sized pop choruses of ‘Let Me In’ and titular ‘Coming Home’ to the mournful singer-songwriter ballad ‘See You Again’ and sprawling rock-opera opus ‘Awakening,’ the band hopes that the songs will appeal to all fans of the show, and even resonate with those who aren’t familiar with the popular Disney program.”

“We love interacting with the Amphibia fandom online,” shared Oh Geez lead singer and songwriter Sean McGibany. “But we don’t want there to be any barrier of entry to this music. We want all our friends and family – most of whom have never seen the show – to be able to relate to the songs. So, we always look for the familiar themes and messages, and highlight them in our music.”

Begun in 2020 as a quarantine hobby, Oh Geeez quickly evolved from a YouTube reaction channel to a “prolific music-making force.” Comprised of McGibany (vocals), Jack Gilmond (guitar), and Alex Dollenmayer (drums), the trio crafts sincere, hook-laden songs about family, friends, and fantasy, inspired by a variety animated shows and movies.

Coming Home – the Mixtape is now available here.
