Alternative band Owel will gig at MilkBoy Philly in Pennsylvania on Nov.10.
The band recently released the new song "Too Young to Fall in Love" from their sophomore full-length, “dear me,” which drops Nov. 11 on Equal Vision Records.
"This song was a big step for us toward unfamiliar territory, so it was pretty exciting and fun to work on," said vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Jay Sakong. "Although we're no stranger to electronic elements in our songs, we usually keep them tucked somewhat in the background. I've always dug electronic bands like Moby, Washed Out, or Massive Attack because they're always so good at creating a feeling or groove. That was really the goal for this - not to be technically impressive but to just create a groove.”
The band also recently partnered with A.V. Club for the premiere of their video for "Pale Soft Light" that was illustrated and animated by Sakong and can be seen below.
The new album was co-produced by Sakong and Gates’ vocalist Kevin Dye and is available for pre-order now at owelband.merchnow.com. All physical pre-orders come with an instant MP3 download of "Too Young to Fall in Love," as well as the band's previously released singles "Paper Hands" and "Pale Soft Light".
The New Jersey-based indie outfit will kick off a new tour supporting the Soil & the Sun on Nov. 10 in Philly. The month-long tour will also include a special headline/album release show for Owel on Nov. 11 in New York City. Everyone who purchases a ticket to the album-release show will also receive a free copy of the CD at the venue.
