I’ve been waiting nearly a year for this record to come out – Omni’s debut lp, Deluxe. – and this track, “Wire”, was my initial introduction. Clocking in at just over three minutes, the track neatly encapsulates the best of late 70s / early 80s jittery post-punk, all without muddying the waters with unnecessary pastiche. Omni, like its namesake, hail from Atlanta and are comprised of former members of Carnivores/Deerhunter.
The album drops July 8th, via Trouble In Mind Records. And, by the way — it was worth the wait.
