Omni – Multi-task (Released 22nd September)

£20.99 – Coloured Red vinyl LP with poster indie stores only

Atlanta, GA trio Omni charges out of the gate in 2016, stunning everyone within earshot with their debut longplayer, “Deluxe”; a dizzyingly refreshing amalgam of
wiry post-punk jitters & a dash of zen cool. “Multi-task” is their latest off­ering & all signs point to the coveted goal of “next level” Guitarist Frankie Broyles (ex-Balkans/Deerhunter) & bassist/vocalist Philip Frobos (Carnivores) crafted “Deluxe”s eleven tracks in their practice space with friend & engineer Nathaniel Higgins “Nathaniel truly knows us, what we like and what we should sound like” says Frobos. They returned to Higgins for “Multi-task”, recording basic drum tracks at Higgins’ home studio & overdubbing bass, guitar, vocals & more during two separate trips to a remote cabin in the woods near Vienna, Georgia. “It gave a true peace/piece of mind away from the city” Frobos says, “We could work with no distractions or limitations at our own pace.”
“Multi-task” is a more musically adventurous step forward for the band, keeping the  frantic, fleet-fingered fingerpicking of Broyles’ guitar work & Frobos’ dead-cool delivery while expanding their musical palette & to include whispers of post-Roxy glam &
Postcard Records pop. “Multi-task” balances the band’s trademark off­-kilter & unconventional jams (Southbound Station”, “Supermoon”) with an elegance not found in many of their contemporaries, songs like “Tuxedo Blues” & “Type”, with their underlying seductive sophistication create an aura of romance that many post-punk bands dare not tread. Omni pulls it o­ with grace & style, still whirring on their minimalist funk-fused agit-pop while creating an album that is awash in the excitement of new love, or fleeting attraction – a journey from that dizzying buzz of first date pheromones found twirling on the dance floor to the cab ride cool-down to home (or wherever.)
