Springing into our hearts a little while back with his band Smith Westerns and their utterly lovable catalogue, Cullen Omori is well known amongst many.
Sadly, the trio broke up after the third album, all continuing on into other various projects. Sharing his brand new entitled track ‘Four Years’ Cullen Omori is bouncing back with new material since the release of his debut album ‘New Misery’ in 2016.
Welcoming you back to his sunshine indie sound, there comes a clean and vibrant production style. Led by dreamy, glimmering guitars, he manages to intertwine a blissful pop melody with bittersweet 80s hued hooks. ‘Four Years’ undoubtably rings out with youthful enthusiasm, covering familiar topics we all know too well.
Regarding the song, he says: “the song is meant to be an exchange of perceptions: a duet except sung by one person. The first verse deals with the conviction and singular determination needed to end the relationship. The second verse is the reactionary response to what is usually an unexpected upset to a familiar and welcomed status quo.”
Also heading out on the road, the singer will take on the US throughout May with The Gloomies.
