Biography

In the state of Minnesota lies a small town called Owatonna with roughly twenty-two thousand inhabitants; within that city is a quiet road with a modest house. In that house there’s an unkempt basement with no windows. Within those confines you’ll find Adam Young of Owl City hard at work, creating his electronic and melodically infectious brand of music with a simple and singular ...

Like most people I've only recently discovered Owl City and have been eager to find out more. This EP has fantastic songs on it, and I hope that more people check out his back catalogue. My favourite song by far so far this year has to be... not Fireflies... but Captains and Cruise Ships, which is a fantastically bouncy escapist song with really great lyrics:

"Old captains and brand new cruise ships; sailing over the briny sea; when I crash my beloved desk job; and swim through the debris; I'll cut loose and leave this madhouse; bound for the Atlantic blue; I'll stroll down your tree lined driveway; and sail the ocean with you".

It's so rare that someone really talented hits the top of the charts these days that I'm doing what I usually rebel against and jumping on that bandwagon.

Also check out Maybe I'm Dreaming.

First of it must be said, I don't really consider myself a fan of Owl City. Anyone who knows the guy is well aware that his fan base consists mostly of pre teen girls who think his lyrics are deep and dreamy. They're not. The lyrics are mostly random rhymes, nonsensical stories, bible versus and rainbow dazed delirium. The vocals aren't really up to scratch either, reeking of autotune, making the whole thing seem unnatural and processed. However, some of the synth pop madness manages to hit decent notes. The most popular song by Owl City is without a doubt 'Fireflies' from 2009's 'Ocean Eyes' A rhythmic, magical one hit wonder. I was intrigued to hear the mans background songs that led up to such a song. 'Of June' provides some interesting selections..

The first song 'Swimming In Miami' is strangely a mix of upbeat vocals and synth loops, but saddening bass and solo melodies. The lyrics are really out there, with several metaphors "I am the captain of an oil tanker that travels through your veins". Theres also some manufactured falsetto going on, but the best of the lyrics are "When you are lying half asleep in your room, unaware if it is midnight or afternoon". Not really much to go by but this songs hopping background synth effects and outro riff are memorable and make the song breeze by with an unassured feeling of what is to come. Still a decent track though. "Captains and Cruise Ships" is just too childlike in its rhyming and beat that you feel silly just listening to it. Its super smily and full of more 'head in the clouds' writing. The keyboards are a bit out of control as well and its not really what you want after the 1st song builds up your expectations. 'Designer Skyline' however is a masterpiece.
