Omni – “Equestrian”

Last year, Omni’s Deluxe was one of Bandcamp’s best-kept post-punk secrets, and now the Atlanta trio have announced a new album. Titled Multi-task, the 11-track LP looks to continue the band’s gravelly low-end vocals and scrappy upbeat guitar with a distinct Devo or Television edge.

Today, the group—which features former members of Deerhunter and Carnivores—has shared the new track “Equestrian.” With a steady lo-fi pulse, the act layers gritty guitars into a outpouring of analog warmth. Each element feels essential to the build of a tight-knit mid-tempo groove as singer Philip Frobos oscillates between a disaffected croon and the yelps and shouts of high-energy punk. “You know you’re worth it / You can’t afford it” intones Frobos with a caustic deadpan delivery.

Multi-task is out September 22 via Trouble in Mind. Check out the single and the band’s tour dates below.
