Redefining the term “power trio,” The OM Sound sounds more like a hip-hop orchestra than a three piece band. Technical drumming is paired with live electronic percussion, synthesizers, shredding keyboards, and crunchy guitar. Hip-hop verses empower the people and bold, sultry harmonies contrast with rolling didgeridoo rhythms and deep dubby bass lines. The creative use of loop pedals adds yet another layer to their sound.
The OM Sound released their debut album, The Tipping Point, recorded in Melbourne, in 2012. The album was the foundation for their current sound as they strove to bring the electronic hip-hop grooves to life with organic instruments. After completing their first cross-Canadian tour, they have recently been gigging relentlessly in Montreal and releasing a series of live studio videos online.
The OM Sound’s new album, Gardens In The Ghetto, was recorded live off the floor in Montreal and released in 2016. Inspired by the trio's experiences in the city, the band seeks to express the beauty of music and culture found in the never-ending chaos of urban living. This industrious inspiration is tempered by a deep connection and respect for nature.
