Irish band OMONOKO have just released a new single Weight In Gold which sees them bend genres and mix up styles in a melting pot of electronic, pop and indie with great success.
Sounding like Alt-J or Metronomy in theory the track is however infused with the band’s own flecks of emotion and attitudes from their lives living around the world. The pounding dance beats make way for weaving crystalline guitars and 1975-esque sample and synth twists which warm and intrigue the ears.
As the track evolves it becomes more and more infectious, evaporating into a hazy mist of atmospheres and exotic dreamy grooves. With calling cards like this, it shouldn’t be long before OMONOKO is a name on everyone’s lips…
