Omega Vague, or the moniker for Craig Douglas' ethereal rock project, has just shared a brand new track over at Echoes and Dust. This new song, "Drown," is a great example of Omega Vague's genre-spanning sound; you can hear influences of space rock, shoegaze, and even a little folk. The acoustic guitar riffs bounce along while Douglas' vocals are airy and light, fluttering above the mix. Overall, it's a peek at the softer side of Omega Vague, the rest of which you can check out on Aversion/Reversion, which will be out April 14th. Take a listen to the new song below.
Omega Vague is the solo project of the ever-prolific Craig Douglas, whose work spans many genres including dreampop, shoegaze, and darkwave. With a new LP slated for April 28 release, Douglas shared a new single today via Somewherecold, who said it "recalls the hazy days of Pink Floyd mixed with the electronic prowess of M83."
Omega Vague is the solo project of Hartford, CT based Craig Douglas, who has been creating -- in one form or another -- introspective dark wave, dream pop, and experimental music since 2005. Aversion/Reversion is the most recent addition to his extensive catalogue and promises to be his strongest work to date. Sonically the album balances a fine line between light and dark, peaceful and somber, even blissful and grave.
