New Jersey-based indie outfit OWEL released their intimate sophomore full-length, 'dear me,' on November 11, 2016. The album was was co-produced by Sakong and Gates’ vocalist Kevin Dye.
'dear me' is the follow-up to Every Good Boy (EP, 2015), produced by Mike Watts (As Tall As Lions, The Dear Hunter), and the band’s debut, self-titled full-length (2013). Featuring delicate, dreamy vocals with lush five-part harmonies, elegant string arrangements and a tasteful touch of electronic elements throughout, the band has created a truly stunning sound on dear me that is all their own and simultaneously feels classic and modern. On the album, dramatic crescendos and dynamic soundscapes weave behind ethereal vocals, gracefully leading listeners on a phenomenal sonic journey of reflection, curiosity and contemplation.
