Listen to Cullen Omori’s New Single ‘Synthetic Romance’
The ex-Smith Western has a new album out March 18
Former Smith Westerns frontman Cullen Omori has shared “Synthetic Romance,” the third peek at his upcoming solo debut New Misery. The track is premiering today at i-D, along with an interview where Omori describes sleeping in a storage container while recording with members of Cults and MGMT at Brooklyn’s Treefort Studios.
“As much as I loved what we did in Smith Westerns, I just felt a few of our influences were too visible,” Omori told i-D. “I wanted to explore my own influences without making this pastiche not having had the time to really absorb something. I wanted something smoother, a little more clever.”
New Romance is out March 18 from Sub Pop. Listen to the smooth, clever vibes of “Synthetic Romance” below.
