Currently in the midst of a headlining summer tour, Indiana singer Omar Apollo is releasing a new video. “Ignorin”, one of the standout tracks on his debut EP Stereo, receives a lonewolf-directed visual treatment that focuses in on Omar’s life in Indiana, complete with skateboarding, good friends and summer night bonfires. The video was shot in Indiana, outside of the house where Omar lived in the attic with several of his friends. In the following months, he’s moved out and embarked on a summer tour off of his Stereo EP that blends English and Spanish lyrics and pays homage to his Mexican heritage.

Speaking about his decision to take a risk and make music in an interview with Pigeons & Planes, Omar says, “I have so many cousins, and they think they have to work as hard as their parents did, to the point where they don’t really have dreams… I just want to let them know that our parents came over and worked hard, but they worked hard so that we can do something else.”

Watch “Ignorin” above and see below for more info on his debut EP. Don’t miss Omar on The W.A.N.T. Tour, which has sold out at nearly every stop so far. See full tour routing below.
