Chicago boast many purveyors of soul, but few own the role like The O’My’s, comprised of Maceo Haymes, Nick Hennessey, Boyang Matsapola, Baron Golden, William Miller, Erick Mateo, and J.P. Floyd. (A lot of names to keep track of, for sure, so for now just pay attention to their sound.) Today, Mass Appeal premieres The O’My’s new track “Piano Wu,” featuring Donnie Trumpet, Saba, the late Zack Wicks, IceFace, and Satellite View. (At this point, you’ve probably lost track of who’s who, but just remember the music is what’s most important here.) The title foreshadows the track’s Wu-Tang vibes, but they’re only cursory in the grand scheme of things. If anything, you might catch a waft of Outkast stank coming through your speakers.
For those of you in the New York City area, The O’My’s make their SOB’s headlining debut tomorrow night. In the meantime, listen to “Piano Wu” below and get familiar.
