NEW TRACK: Owensie – Distance Of Her Love

I’m absolutely loving this new track by Owensie from his upcoming second album Citizens – out 24th of October 2012 on Out On A Limb Records on vinyl and digital.
“Distance of Her Love” was “written about migrant domestic workers” says Owensie.  And while on its façade it may be easy listening, a more careful listen will reveal Jazz, Folk, and Brazilian/Latin influences.
Owensie’s staple instrument -acoustic guitar, a mellow percussion, viola, a saxophone, and Owensie’s delicate falsetto and lyrics coalesce to tell the story of a mother who sets out  far from her home and children in order to look after other people’s children as a necessary means to provide for her own.
If there is one thing that Owensie rarely fails at it would be providing powerful, inventive and, in this case, poignant stories through his music.
Citizens is out 24th of October 2012 on Out On A Limb Records and we’re looking forward to it.  Stream “Distance Of Her Love” below.
