Australian progressive instrumentalists, The Omnific – featuring the unique line up of two bass players and a drummer – have streamed their new single/video ‘Wax & Wane’, out now via Wild Thing Records.
Bassist Toby Peterson-Stewart comments: “After 2 years of being hidden away working on our craft, it’s exciting to finally share new music. ‘Wax & Wane’ explores the natural ebbs & flows of musical inspiration, a concoction of riffs developed during the Covid lockdown. Throughout the song & music video, elements both audible and visible have been reversed and altered, giving meaning to the name. We are incredibly appreciative of the team we have assisting us, creating a coherent visual representation (artwork and music video) that enhances the music we create.”
After releasing three stunning EPs the band have attracted interest and fans from all corners of the globe clocking in over five million Spotify streams and two million views on their Youtube channel. The Omnific’s accessible style is for all music lovers; from those seeking to be challenged to those who wish to be blanketed by atmosphere, creating an identifiable sound and truly global fan base. With swirling textures, syncopation, euphoric highs and melancholic lows, The Omnific are truly captivating.
The band have established working relationships with reputable companies Darkglass Electronics, Neural DSP and Dingwall Guitars, seeing them represent the brands with performances at the Melbourne Guitar Show, bringing attention amongst the ‘Gear-Nerd’ community. Coupled with their online play-through, gear demo and music videos, the band’s reach is beyond what many would expect from this impressive Melbourne trio so early in their career.
They are also no stranger to the live circuit with a stack of domestic and international touring under their belt, having toured with Between the Buried and Me (Australian Tour) Cog (Sold Out Australian Tour), Intervals & Sithu Aye (European Tour), several of their own headline Australian tours as well as supporting Ne Obliviscaris, Galactic Empire, Circles and others.
