Chicago duo OHMME (fka HOMME) was started by Macie Stewart and Sima Cunningham in the summer of 2014, combining their love for lush vocals and songwriting with their love of experimentation and sound. Still in their 20s, Stewart and Cunningham are already established players within the Chicago music scene - having recorded and toured with homegrown acts as varied as Tweedy, Whitney, Chance The Rapper and Twin Peaks. Enlisting fellow Chicago cohorts Doug McCombs of Tortoise, Ken Vandermark and cellist Tomeka Reid in the effort, OHMME's self-produced debut Parts ranges from shiny 2-minute bangers to sprawling 7-minute long tracks boasting moodily atmospheric guitars and piercing feedback. The result showcases a band that manages to organically marry a breadth of divergent styles into an album that is cohesive, daring, and distinctly their own.
