Ominar Leaving for Ominous Pursuits

ominar - leavingAdding some sparkle to the local scene in Halifax via the band route, Tawny Lucas, now based in Toronto under alias Ominar releases her latest solo LP Leaving. Dark, moody, and gothic, this thing drips with a black, ominous rain. It is a very cohesive work, and many tracks feel like a variation of a central theme, leaving the listener both morose and spooked. This talented gal heroically fills a hungry void, as dark wave is relatively barren here, and she does an excellent job at it.  If nothing else, this disc reminds us of indie pop’s capacity to make things exciting.  iTunes
