Rock duo Om initiates "a conversation between the instruments"

"I've never seen another band that gets so much attention about changing one bass guitar pedal or overdubbing one extra tambourine," Amos observes. "Nobody would say anything if Men at Work switched out a bass, but in this band, there's the sense of trust between an artist and audience. It's a delicate thing."

And it sounds like Cisneros has found an understanding new foil in his ever-evolving dialogue. "It's a joy to work with Emil," he says softly. "The interplay between the instruments — the very premise of having a duo is to have a conversation between the instruments, and it literally happens nonstop when we play."
