OWL EYES
‘YOU AND I’
‘LE SOLEIL’
(Out now through Mushroom Group)

Australian pop darling Owl Eyes twirls into the spotlight with a lush yet danceable disco stomper, ‘You And I’, accompanied by the sun-lit b-side, ‘Le Soleil’, two tracks entwined with the parallel intensity of love, each from a different viewpoint.

Beckoning to the disintegration of love, ‘You And I’ masks raw, honest lyrics with an alluring upbeat composition reminiscent of ‘70s era disco, featuring hazy bass, luscious synths, and a summoning call-to-action of lyrics which add a deeper context to the at-first breezy track. On second listen Owl Eyes’ sweetly soothing vocals tell of the emotional chaos that love can make you feel, almost a taunt to the upbeat nature of the track. As the song builds, a crescendo of lush sounds crashes until we meet Owl Eye’s final command: “Dance”. It’s an undeniably sweet yet fiercely femme treasure that only Owl Eyes can conjure.

Written in Brussels, ‘You And I’ is naturally married to the love note ‘Le Soleil’. Both are labours of love, transcending into a timeless, melodic, ‘60s French-pop fantasy, and dance together on the delicate edge of devotion. Infatuated with romance, ‘You And I’ and ‘Le Soleil’ were created from many moonlight nights between Owl Eyes and Belgian nu disco producer Vito de Luca, better known as Aeroplane. Vito’s French house influence trickles throughout the tracks, both embodied with love and dedication, reflected as lessons that are pure and honest.

‘You And I’/’Le Soleil’, along with ever glistening ‘On Me’, mark the beginning of a fresh era for Owl Eyes. The first peek at new music from the Melbourne artist since 2013 debut LP Nightswim, ‘On Me’ (accompanied by this stunning a cappella version) was met with acclaim from fans and critics alike with the song being added to triple j and clocking over 850K Spotify streams. The dreamy single is a poignant ode to finding power within oneself in the face of uncertainty, representing all that we know and love when Owl Eyes comes to mind.

No stranger to the stage, Owl Eyes will perform headline shows this May, immersing fans in her romantic dreamscape. After touring the world as a vocalist for Flight Facilities, Owl Eyes will treat audiences in Sydney and Melbourne to her chic, ageless sound, an embraced maturity with glimpses of yesteryear but forever moving forward.
