I feel like I'm far too old to get into a song called "You Suck," but there's no denying how great this one is. Hailing from Sweden, Omni of Halos are made up of members of Division of Laura Lee, Bombus, Sparks of Seven, Firebreather, and more. Their new song is this thunderously heavy rock song with a ton of roots in both punk and the heavier side of garage rock. But "You Suck" also adds a touch of pedal steel for this unexpected country twang. I've never normally associated pedal steel with hard rock (or Sweden), but if this is what it sounds like more bands should add it. It creates this warm and inviting feeling that goes completely against the hard and fuzzed out rock, but also goes with it perfectly.
Lead vocalist/guitarist Henri Hjelt Rostberg says of the new song:
”The song came out of an old riff that’s been haunting me since my teens. It’s about old experiences being in toxic relationships. The title speaks for itself.”
