The only certainty, perhaps, is that things will always change. Yet, how do we live in the constant flux? What does it mean to be when nothing can ever stay still - when everything ends?
These are the questions Omahrose asks of us with her music. To love or to not be loved, to be safe or to be scared - within the knotted harmonies of her silken voice we hear these propositions weighed, doubted and asserted. Scared or sacred? You choose.
Over the course of five years, three EPs and countless live iterations, Omahrose has woven the pained intimacy of soul with the self-assured swag of hip-hop, the sweat-slick of R&B with the poetics of the soul. This is an independent music, one for the heart with the mind. For the body.
Because the more things change, the more they stay the same. So, sink into its uneven flow. Maybe things will be ok.
