Chicago duo Ohmme have a textured sound that’s full of so many sounds, that pinning it down can be difficult at times. While it’s safe to say that good is good and genre doesn’t matter, their upcoming album Fantasize Your Ghost could prove that the duo is beyond traditional terms. On their new single “Selling Candy” the bend the bounds and deliver a song that’s as creatively harmonic as music can be.
There’s a balanced understanding here it seems, offering an internal spirit that the song embodies. Creating its own tone between the hypnotic vocals and the arrangements, the duo offers up things in a catchy yet artful way. The guitar swings while stroked, the drums hit every so often and the two sing together like they’re howling in the wind. It’s beautifully done while the noise touches they bring to the track play underneath in a masterful way.
The song is ready to stream above or on all streaming platforms. Fantasize Your Ghost is ready to preorder on multiple formats directly from Joyful Noise Recordings before its June 05 street date. Ohmme has rescheduled their tour due to COVID-19. Their new dates begin on August 08 at Avrom Farm Party in Ripon, WI until January 21 at Catalyst in Santa Cruz, CA.
