Omnimar: #AtoZChallenge

Omnimar

Who: Omnimar of Moscow. Maria Mar and Alex Vrt

What: Alternative electronic pop/Dark Pop

Why: They are so melodramatic -like my teenager would say, “Big Mood.” Everything about them is so stylish – the music, their Instagram account, the videos. When I hear their music, I feel like I could choreograph a whole dance routine. What else should someone do with their time?

If you have time and I know that you do – watch their videos on YouTube. The videos are amazing.

The post is part of the 2020 installment of the A to Z Challenge. My topic for 2020 is Rock Goddesses. All of the bands have female lead singers.

Sleep Deprived Music Review: Betty Who

Betty Who

Betty Who was on my YouTube feed about a month ago because I was watching NPR’s Tiny Desk series. Of course, I looked up everything else that she’s done because she’s A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Also Betty Who’s Instragram account is the best. Her album, Betty has been available in all of the usual spots since February.

The album feels like a party. Most of the album has an upbeat tempo, very danceable. It sounds like electro pop but with more heart. The lyrics are not shallow. Betty is letting you know how she feels but at a faster pace.

There is one song, “Taste,” that has a familiar beat in one section. At the moment, I cannot remember what song it sounds like.

Betty Who is from Sydney, Australia but is currently living in Los Angeles.

She has played the cello since the age of four. Betty also taught herself to play the piano and guitar. Fun fact: I read somewhere that she is 6’2″.

It’s been hard to find an album that is as good as En Vogue’s Funky Divas for getting ready to out dancing. Betty will definitely be able to fit on the party prep playlist.

Sleep Deprived Music Review: Electric Youth

Electric Youth
Memory Emotion

The music of Electric Youth is sometimes ethereal and at other times energizing. It’s updated electronic pop. They remind me a little bit of ‘Til Tuesday; however, Electric Youth has their own style. Their new album, Memory Emotion, is available everywhere. My favorite song on the album is ARAWA.

Multi-instrumentalist Austin Garrick and vocalist Bronwyn Griffin are from Toronto/West Hamilton, Canada.

What’s their story? They met in middle school. Their Facebook biography says is all:

we are electric youth
we were childhood loves
we grew up together 
we make music together

I’d like to listen to this album while driving down the California coast. If there was a convertible and fancy sunglasses in the equation, that would be cool.

Sleep Deprived Music Review: Roosevelt

If it’s dreary where you are, then the Young Romance album by Roosevelt may boost your spirits. There’s definitely an electronic-pop/synth-pop vibe going on with this album. I think that the lyrics give the music some depth.

The album won’t even get on your nerves at all. Some synth-pop can sound repetitious but I think Roosevelt keeps it interesting and upbeat. I enjoy the songs “Losing Touch” and “Better Days.”

At this very moment, Roosevelt is preparing for a show in Paris. How many of you wish you could be there? I know that I do.

Roosevelt is originally from Viersen, Germany but currently calls Cologne, Germany home.  The tour will be in the United States during December.
