OWEL ANNOUNCE UPCOMING LIVE ALBUM FOR NOV. 10TH
OWEL have long been revered for their pristine, shimmering arrangements that shift seamlessly between soft and delicate and loud and emotive. Anyone who has seen them in a live setting can assert that what truly makes them stand out is their ability to perfectly replicate these intricate studio arrangements in a way that not only captures the essence of the recordings, but breathes another layer of life into them. Today, the band has announced that they will partner with Equal Vision Records to release a live album from Audio Pilot Studios; offering fans the opportunity to experience their very special live sound at their desks or at home.
To celebrate the announcement of this release, OWEL released the first in an upcoming series of Live from Audio Pilot Studios performance videos today as well. The video, which the band premiered via their social media channels, does an uncanny job of capturing that special moment where the band expertly recreates “Too Young to Fall in Love”, one of the stand out singles from their 2016 Equal Vision Records release, dear me. You can check out the video in it’s entirety now on Facebook or YouTube.
OWEL is comprised of Jay Sakong (lead vocals, guitar, keys), Nunzio Moudatsos (vocals, bass), Ryan Vargas (percussion) and Seamus O’Connor (vocals, guitar, keys). Their delicate, dreamy vocals, five-part harmonies, elegant string arrangements and touch of electronic elements form a stunning sound that is truly all their own. The dramatic crescendos and dynamic soundscapes weave behind ethereal vocals on their 2016 Equal Vision Records release dear me, leading listeners on a phenomenal sonic journey of reflection, curiosity and contemplation.
This December, OWEL will be joined by another one of Equal Vision Records brightest young bands, Northern Faces, to close out 2017 with a series of co-headlining dates through the northeastern United States.
