Cinematic in scope and sound, "Omens" draws inspiration equally from the golden age of analog synths and 70's film soundtracks, resulting in a Nouveau Retro aural aesthetic that appeals and impresses greatly.
Another release from the duo behind SNOWBEASTS, this one offers even more of the shared DNA behind both projects. Far less beat and technoid to be had than on Sentient. Thoroughly enjoyable, much like the rest of their output.
'Omens' is an attempt to bring elements of Pattern Behavior's (AKA Snowbeasts) first two EP’s together and expand them in to a longer and more coherent piece of work. While last year's 'Electric Minds' saw the project flirting with synth pop structures, the new album takes things into more ambient and reflective territory. Beats are stripped out almost entirely, and only make a brief appearance on Conduit. The eight extended tracks leverage on the visual impact of 70's sci-fi art and is influenced by the synthesizer work of Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, and the late Pete Namlook.
