OMYO's TOP 5 Pre-Gig Tracks
London based duo OMYO turned heads this year being nominated for the Record of the Year and Best Video at the Unsigned Music Awards and completing their mini headline UK tour; William Edward and Tom McCorkell are an infectiously upbeat pop band, cleverly mixing classic sounds with urban riffs. Tackling relevant issues through their heartfelt lyrics, their single ‘Save Me’ supported the Young Minds charity in a bid to help raise awareness for support of mental health struggles amongst the younger generation.
Today marks the release of their new single, "Champion", taking us on the journey of the humble OMYO beginnings, to playing their biggest shows. “We always believed in what is possible and wanted to spread the message through this single that they can become their own champions; anything is possible!” says William Edward.
We caught OMYO at their headline gig last week in the O2 Islington Academy and the band have shared with us their top 5 pre-gig songs to help them get in the mood:
HUMAN by Rag'n'Bone Man
Our Manager Ken loves this one, and especially loves to sing along to this backstage after the consumption of a couple of alcoholic beverages before a show!
UNFORGETTABLE by French Montana
We heard it when we were leaving New York in the taxi after our American debut show. This song holds a lot of amazing memories for us.
IT AIN’T MY FAULT by Brothers Osborne
This one keeps good ol’ Ken quiet and distracts him from cracking awkward and pretty shoddy jokes.
WORLDS GREATEST by R. Kelly
A brilliant feel good vibe, a pre-show must!
WILD BOY by Machine Gun Kelly
Will loves a bit of MGK rap to get him psyched up to go out and lose his mind, singing calm heart broken pop lyrics.
