This week I’m listening to: IVORY by Omar Apollo

NME says: The Indiana-raised star’s storytelling flair combines with emotionally rich alt-R&B, funk-pop and indie on this long-awaited debut

Rolling Stone says: The LP is a bountiful trove of genres and technique; crack it open and sharp guitar licks, celestial harmonies, aching soul melodies, and even touches of ranchera come tumbling out.

CLASH says: Apollo creates a new sound within his alternative style. Bouncing from indie to alternative R&B to hip-hop, ‘Ivory’ is a culmination of his interests, all mushed together to create his own sense of authenticity. It is a commanding start, clearly marking out his career ambitions as he continues his journey of success. For him, this is only but the beginning.

What do I have to say about IVORY? This is the sound of a new superstar in the making. Soon everyone will know who Omar Apollo is.
