Omerta are a Manchester based four-piece comprising:

Aaron Starkie: Vocals & Sequencing
Nick Moylan: Guitar & Backing Vocals.
James Ryan: Bass.
Neil Turvin: Drums.

Omerta combine synths, strings, bleeps and beeps, cutting guitar and a solid rhythm section to create music that engages both melodically and lyrically delivered by a "heart wrenching" vocal. Their sound has drawn comparisons with Radiohead, Interpol and The Killers.

April this year saw the band release their debut double A-side single Everyone is Frozen on a limited 7" run and stockists were forced to restrict purchase to only one copy per customer in the interests of public order. In only three hectic days stocks in Manchester and London had disappeared. Fans who were too late made brave bids on eBay for up to 15 times the disc's original value.

It is hardly surprising if you consider that before the first piece of vinyl had been pressed "Everyone Is Frozen" had been playlisted on XFM, chosen as record of the week by Claire Sturgess and been recommended by Steve Lamacq on his BBC 6Music show. On being invited to record a live session for XFM by Sturgess shortly after this first release, they became one of only three unsigned bands to have been bestowed the honour.

Their debut single disappeared in days and now their second single "One Chance" (limited to 400 Vinyls/400 CD's) is set to be released on October 24th 2005 and looks set to repeat that feat.
