Ohmme, the Chicago-based duo of Sima Cunningham and Macie Stewart, have announced their new album Fantasize Your Ghost.
The record, which arrives as the follow up to 2018 effort Parts, will be released through Joyful Noise Records on June 5th. To coincide with the news, Ohmme have shared the album’s lead single ‘3 2 4 3’.
Having teamed up with producer Chris Cohen for the new material, Ohmme recruited filmmaker Alejandra Villalba García to deliver the visuals for the band’s first release. “Sima and Macie explained to me that the song was about seeing the landscape/neighbourhood change in front of your eyes even though you don’t want it to change,” García said in a press release. “I thought that the first half of the video should be about them staying still trying to resist change as the scenery around them changes quickly.
“The tall dark figure represents change and how it keeps getting closer to them until there’s no escape. When they fight with another version of themselves, the newer versions are the ones that win because they embrace change.”
