OMNI – ” Equestrian “

Omni, the Atlanta trio behind one of 2016’s tightest post-punk records, Deluxe, is already back with a new set of wiry, Devo-inspired jams. The band, which includes former members of Deerhunter and Carnivores, piles power riffs on top of propulsive chord progressions and stop-start rhythms, as on the pogoing lead single, “Equestrian.”

Omni might be a trio of indie-rock survivors from the likes of Deerhunter and Warehouse, but they come across like a post-punk band straight out of the early ’80s, from their wiry, jumpy rhythms to the technical appearance of their new album Multi-task’s cover art. That corner of classic alternative music is not mined too often these days, at least not to this extent, and Omni go all in on it — their songs are infectious, bright series of sharp guitar licks and sing-speak vocals. It’s not quite reinventing anything, but if you’re the kind of person who has proclivities for the less brooding strains of post-punk, Omni are the new masters of it.
