Ohmme, aka Chicago duo Sima and Cunningham have released a new single and accompanying video ‘Ghost’, from their forthcoming album Fantasize Your Ghost, out on June 5th via Joyful Noise.
It’s a joyfully scruffy, messy indie pop, with these beautiful harmonies in the vocals backed by wobbly synths and insistent piano/electronics, with this buzzsaw guitar slashing all over it, particularly in the guitar solo which sounds glorious in its naive noodlings.
“We’d been kicking around the idea of doing something like the Pop Musik video by M but darker,” says the band of the video. “There’s a lot of darkness these days but it’s important to keep dancing. Austin said, ‘fancy ghosts’ and ‘can I press order on these California King satin bedsheets’ and we said ‘Yes, and YES!’”
