Trophy Eyes Bring Their Punk Attitude Alive In New “OMW” Video

Trophy Eyes 2023

Pulled from their fourth studio full-length Suicide And Sunshine, Australian post-punk mainstays Trophy Eyes have issued a new video for their hopeful yet exhilarating single, “OMW.” While the video is simple in its storytelling, the striking use of color and the outdoor backdrop vividly brings the band’s punk attitude to life, fueling the energy and spirit of the track.

While the group infuses “OMW” with a familiar emotional depth, the track plays on its simplicity by detailing themes of self-discovery and personal growth. A standout track on their most recent LP, “OMW” masterfully blends a pop sensibility with the raw power of thrashing guitars and the distinct, raspy vocals courtesy of vocalist John Floreani. Serving as a standout across the group’s recently released LP, lyrics such as, “Start on the bottom like they said/And I’m starting to see changes in me/Could be someone that deserves you one day/Careful what you wish for ’cause you might find me there” and “Everything turned out just fine/But I still want to die,” draws on the hopeful nature of the track.
