Ambient and smooth, Halifax-based artist Ominar (the project name taken on by Tawnie Lucas) is turning heads with her mix of alt-pop and almost R&B sounds. Check out “Candles”, above, to see what the hype is about.
Like a rich chocolate mousse, Ominar’s sound is mellow and sweet, with a bitter edge that suggests quality, the purity of dark chocolate. An almost eerie trickle of bell-like electronics add melody, something that Ominar is striving for on Transition Roads, her latest album. This track has definitely struck on an addictive quality, and one the album continues to strike throughout.
Transition Roads can be streamed and purchased on Bandcamp. To hear more of Ominar’s music, check out her SoundCloud page. To see what’s new with this talented singer-songwriter, follow her on Twitter or check out her Facebook page.
