OMN ~ In Quiet Rooms


Who is OMNOllie McKendrick-Ness: A young and talented musician/producer based in Birmingham/London, UK !

My first impression of “In Quiet Rooms” :  A somber yet powerful track full of thought-provoking sounds and words!

My take :  It has been a while since I have heard anything from OMN but the reemergence of the young artist is a welcome return.  The track “Betwixt” made a profound first impression on me a few years ago with a beautiful combination of blended electronic textures, minimal chopped up vocals and impeccable tempo control.  And after hearing his new creation “In Quiet Rooms” just a few days ago,  I can’t help but believe OMN has turned his game up a notch whether he meant to or not.

“In Quiet Rooms” is an easy flowing tune meant to be taken in across multiple helpings.  Just one listen will not do it justice.  The gorgeous combination of rolling guitar strums and frollicking-like beats provides the perfect backdrop to the surprise unveiling of Ollie’s own vocal stylings.  His voice fits the tune perfectly by the way and gives the song a little more substance for a listener to grab a hold of.  “In Quiet Rooms” is incredibly introspective and really makes me think about the meaning behind words not only as they were intended by artist, but how they make actually make me feel each time through.  Welcome to the next level OMN.  Welcome!

TMH RATING: 8.4/10 Amazing!

I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
