Post-punk Sub Pop artists from Atlanta, Omni announce new album Souvenir to be released on 16th Feb. As a taster they have dropped a new single Intl Waters, which you can check out below. The spellbinding visualizer was created by the band’s drummer, Chris Yonker.

The band is a duo consisting of Philip Frobos on vocals and bass and Frankie Broyles on guitar, drums, and keyboard. Broyles was previously a member of Deerhunter. Their sound is influenced by post-punk bands like Television, Talking Heads, and Wire, with choppy rhythms and “wiry guitar chords, nervy basslines, and jolting beats. The band shares about the song: “‘INTL Waters’ came together quickly with minimal intentions but soon grew lush with melodies and decadent piano flourishes. Thinking about the sadness of villains as they float around between imaginary borders seemed interesting and amusing to minimise. We hope you enjoy this left turn as much as we do.”

The band’s first album, Deluxe, was released in 2016 on Trouble in Mind Records, followed in 2017 by Multi-task.

In 2019, Omni signed to Sub Pop, and released their third album, Networker, the same year. Now in their 13th year, the fourth album Souvenir will be be toured in the UK & Ireland throughout April. Tickets are on sale now.
