Chicago native Omarr Awake has been putting his music on display for more than two decades now, and has come a considerable way from his “Slow Car Crash” days. His eccentric take on rock goes back to 1999’s Ambivalence and eventually evolved enough to provide a platform for a solo European tour and film soundtrack appearances. Awake’s current moniker debuted around the same time he moved from L.A. to the Live Music Capital, where he’s since joined up with three additional players and has felt right at home.
The quartet was working on a new EP before quarantine came into effect, soon to become Awake’s eighth total release, and although that’ll be put on hold for obvious reasons, today Omarr Awake has shared its lead single (and corresponding music video), perfectly fitting for the current scenario, “Who We Are”!
