Despite how they gained the acronym name for the band, though it may be self explanatory, the Brooklyn-based guys from OMG are indeed a hybrid anomaly. Though they are fairly new into Brooklyn’s music scene (band formed in January 2011), this band is paving way to New York City’s cool underground spots and dropping some funky beats since they premiered. Fusing elements from Afro-beat to alt hip hop, and criolla to R&B soul, the trio made up by Peru-birthed guitarist/producer GC Castillo, Nigerian pianist/producer Olalekan and vocalist/songwriter Mojeed Amushan just brewed a brand new track.
Fresh out the oven, the band drops “Chase the Sun” off the upcoming 2011 LP debut Mr. Mars containing sonic-like synth grooves, funky hip hip beats, melodic keys and swaggy hip hop vocals. To go along with the track, OMG compiled a video with performance footage and other clips featuring the track and the band having a good time.
