Omen available Now
All About OMEN!
Multi-award winning, chart-topping Indigenous folk artists Twin Flames are back, this time with their highly anticipated new album, “OMEN” — available now.
Omen includes tracks such as “Battlefields” penned “Stunningly Poignant” Canadian Beats Magazine, Grace Too a tribute to Gord Downie from The Tragically Hip and their hit song Human UNESCO's official song to celebrate 2019 International Year of Indigenous Languages.
OMEN — is a surprising departure from music the band has released in the past. Backed by an album teeming with pop and synth-heavy sound exploration, the album is concept-based around a dystopian reality, global warming, and humankind being free of social classes, mental health, and addictions,” they say. “It speaks to seeking Omens and signs of hope within ourselves and Mother Nature.” All topics that hit home for the band.
“...a conceptual folk-rock opera…accessible in some moments while profoundly affective and devastatingly personal in others…"
“Mental health and addictions are battles that many people face in silence, we have both faced these battles,” Chelsey shares. “The album speaks to the stigma associated with mental health and the feelings that come from living a life in the shadows with addictions”
“In the Arctic of Canada, Inuit People face the highest amount of suicides in the world,” Jaaji continues. On Omen we have a few songs written to remind our people we have to fight our own minds to survive…
With Omen Twin Flames expand their storytelling repertoire; OMEN offers an intricate exploration into an edgier, darker musical feel that merges alt-pop, rock, and electronic genres into one. Twin Flames also take on a tribute cover of the Tragically Hips Legendary song Grace Too in an Indigenized version to honour Gord Downie and his dedication to reconciliation.
“...one of the best and brightest acts in all of their scene this year.”
Using unique sounds, Indigenous Spirit flutes, traditional drums and western instruments, synthesizing harmonies, and traditional Inuit throat singing — including a collaboration with two-time JUNO Award nominees, Charlotte Qamaniq from Silla and Rise — Twin Flames unveil in OMEN a raw and honest experience. Certain to follow the successes of their previous two critically acclaimed albums — Jaaji and Chelsey June (2015) and Signal Fire (2017) — Chelsey and Jaaji dive even deeper into stories of courage and survival on OMEN, revealing a true passage into the hearts and minds of the beloved couple, and a gapless release that encourages listeners to take in the entire journey.
With OMEN, Twin Flames question the human mind revealing how one can endure the darkness, and still find a way to bloom; it’s a truly moving experience, foretelling a brighter future while signifying a time for change and a time for strength.
