Sam Smith and Disclosure are the perfect match when it comes to hitting that pop-electronic sweet spot. The pair is back at it with another club-ready jam called “Omen,” and it already has visual accompaniment.
The video for “Omen” is a continuation of Disclosure’s “Holding On” video. It finds Sam in a club where otherworldly powers are swiftly at work. Tattoos, lights, and symbols of the Devil serve as clues as to who’s in on the eventual takedown of the club, as ordinary folk dance into the night. The video is to be continued.
“Omen” comes three years after “Latch,” and it’s everything you’d expect from the pair. Sam Smith’s pillow-soft vocals soar gracefully over Disclosure’s hypnotic beat. The track comes to us as the second single from Disclosure’s Caracal, which officially comes out on September 25. Hopefully Sam will release an acoustic version, as he did with “Latch.”
Stay tuned for Caracal, and in the meantime, watch the video for “Omen” above.
