After two brilliant albums, Omni continue this excellent run with the wonderful Networker. It’s a much more polished sound, yet still retains those sharp angular riffs that they’ve become known for. The lyrics take a deeper look at the current social media culture, particularly with Skeleton Key referencing the fickle ability to just scroll on by if you don’t like what you see.

Equally, there are a variety of styles which are present throughout Networker, all whilst maintaining a consistent tempo; Courtesy Call is reminiscent of Talking Heads at their best, with Blunt Force providing an upbeat and funky track. Overall Networker maintains an excitement and enthusiasm throughout with its hook-laden lyrics that are sure to be chanted along to.
