The indie-rock, power-pop Dallas outfit Omicron J Trauma has been one of Amy Miller‘s favorite local bands for years.
“They don’t have a lot of songs yet, but I just think that they’re great songwriters and a fun band,” KXT’s program director told “Dallas Observer” in 2017.
That “fun” Miller mentioned in her interview, is on full display in the trio’s new six-song EP “You Should Have Thought About That.” Featuring an infectious blend of hooky melodies, driving rhythms, and big power chords on the record, the group’s sound is reminiscent of ’70s pop-rock bands like Cheap Trick and Big Star.
Miller says that exciting, youthful sound is what drew her to the band. “I loved Omicron J Trauma’s sound as soon as I first heard them,” Miller told Central Track. “They’re such a solid rock band and I think they’ve got great songwriting chops. Their harmonies are spot on and translate really well live, too. They’re definitely a band to watch!”
Luckily, now you can. The trio came by for a KXT Live Session performance. And they played three songs off of “You Should Have Thought About That.”
