Don’t Refer to Them as the “Come Back Kids!” Avant-Pop Trio OMNI Takes Lo-Fi to An Aesthetically Beautiful Place, With Debut LP Deluxe: My One-On-One With Co-Founder/Lead Singer Philip Frobos

    Home to nearly 5.6 million residents, Atlanta is somewhat of a seething metropolis still searching for its’ unique identity, akin to an adolescent claiming that, “who they are today, is what they will be tomorrow.” With so many people relocating to Atlanta, the city has an unearthly way of feeling like this “adolescent metropolis” will one day soon spontaneously combust from within. From deep within this mantle lies a “cultural pressure cooker” that has often times produced rare gems. These rarities have been presented to me, in the form of great local musicians and the foreigners that have now claimed Atlanta as their musical hub. One such band, that I was graciously granted the opportunity to chat with is Atlanta’s own, Avant-Pop trio OMNI.  OMNI is the offspring of best buds Philip Frobos (lead singer/bass), Frankie Broyles (guitar) and […]
