New Jersey has long acted as the punch line of countless bad jokes, and as of late, pop culture hasn't offered much help by smudging the lens with the greasy fingers of the Jersey Shore crew. What are often overshadowed are its cultural highlights, and most notably of them all - it's enduring music scene. Joining the extensive list of Garden State musicians is the alternative rock quintet Owel. The group released their self-titled, full-length debut last week, and we're pleased to be cutting the ribbon (with hypothetical giant scissors of course) off their newest music video.
The song "Snowglobe" offers an ideal glimpse inside Owel's multi-genre infused style. Stretching from its twinkly, synthed-out intro to the introspective, orchestral core, it eventually erupts with brilliant sonic pulse. Its video focuses on a young ballerina who longs for a few friends as she tears through sweet spins in a barren loft apartment.
Owel's self-titled debut is out now and you can stream/buy it here.
