Omni are a post-punk trio from Atlanta that include ex-Deerhunter guitarist Frankie Broyles alongside ex-Carnivores members Billy Mitchell and Philip Frobos. They released their joyously wound-up debut album, Deluxe, back in July, and today have announced an upcoming 7″ that will mark the band’s first new music since the LP. “Fever Bass” is an alacritous romp, loose but sharp. There continues to be a discrepancy between Frobos’ words and his tone, as he delivers the opening lyric, “Every day I fall into this crisis,” with a calculated distance that seems to reflect mysticism as much as sardonicism. Yet ultimately “Fever Bass” is oddly cheerful, with ricochetting guitars that snap like rubber bands and a restless athleticism. Listen below.
