Despite my love of rock and alternative music, I have a soft spot in my heart for electropop music, and one of my favorite artists in this genre is Owl City. It’s basically a guy from Owatonna Minnesota that has managed to make some amazing, ethereal, romantic, and moving pop music. Think laying on a beach on an island with someone you love and just enjoying life..
He’s getting big in the music industry. It’s nice to see people with good music gaining popularity instead of hearing the same old radio drivel lately.
Here’s an excerpt from the Owl City Facebook page:
“If your household appliances wrote love songs while you were away on vacation, their cheerful blips and bleeps would pour out the windows, sweep through the neighborhood like candy-coated tidal waves, and you would return home to find crowds of people standing on your lawn, clapping and singing along to the happiest pop melodies imaginable. Welcome to Owl City.”
The album Ocean Eyes is in Stores September 1st. It’s the best produced album to date and nothing short of spectacular.
