Omarr Awake: “Maybe” [PREMIERE]

By: Jack Anderson

With lead vocalist, guitarist, and co-producer Omarr Escoffie behind the sonic steering wheel, Austin four-piece Omarr Awake has kept as busy as they can during quarantine. The quartet’s ever determined to push the boundaries of the rock genre and plan on doing so even further with the release of a new EP in the near future.

Tonight from 6:30pm-8:30pm Omarr Awake plays their first live show since March, celebrating their latest single release with a socially distanced outdoor concert at WTF Icehouse. And even if you’re content kickin’ it at home this evening, you can still dive into Omar Awake’s freshest track yet: a retro rock-soul tune whose prominent Moog work encapsulates the spaced out arrangements of the early-mid-’80s and lays the groundwork for Escoffie’s lyrical owning up to his erstwhile addiction and substance abuse, on “Maybe”!
