Omni is an Atlanta-born trio made up of guitarist Frankie Boyles (Deerhunter, Balkans) and ex-Carnivores members Philip Frobos (vocals/bass) and Billy Mitchell (drums). On their debut album—coming out on the young but reliable indie label Trouble in Mind—Omni isn't coy about their influences: Specifically post-punk from England (Magazine, Wire), Scotland (Josef K) and New Zealand (The Clean). But there are faint echoes of their previous bands too. "Omni's is a sound at once gloaming and crystalline; one that encapsulates the best of late 70s/early 80s jittery post-punk, but without muddying the waters via unnecessary pastiche," says Aquarium Drunkard. "And if that grabs you, it will likely be one of the better records you'll hear this year."Coverage on music sites Official website
