The first time I heard Omar Apollo's "Brakelights," I was sitting on my front porch, watching bugs chase each other down the steps as a pair of birds chirped in the distance.

The warm guitar tones coming through my headphones matched the pleasant moment so well that I didn't even realize it was a song about Omar's shitty car until I interviewed him later. I was a fan as soon as I heard the gorgeous guitar solo that floats in at the 1:44 mark, but the fact that this guy flipped a song concept about a car that turns off when you go too fast into an emotionally nuanced ballad like this is even more impressive. Keep an eye on Omar, he's on to something.
