Omni - 'Equestrian'
With the oft underrated Deluxe, Omni truly carved out their own kind of brilliantly dissonant post-punk. Like the hook-filled 'Afterlife' preceding it, their latest single from the recently announced Multi-task is a twitching, jittering piece of staccato garage-rock.
Singer Philip Frobos' schizophrenic “You know you’re worth it / You can’t afford it” is delivered with a brilliant deadpan delivery as Broyles' dance-ready riffs scatter in a uniquely chaotic and simultaneously regulating manner.
It's wiry and angular, and all those other words critics love use to describe sophisticated, intelligent lo-fi punk. Perfect for a dashing commute or the most intense of workouts 'Equestrian' will make you sweat, though you'll relish being given the run around.
Multi-task is out September 22 via Trouble in Mind.
