After touring the world as a vocalist for Flight Facilities, Australian pop darling Owl Eyes (Brooke Addamo) has signified the return of her solo project with the reveal of her lush, dreamy and utterly danceable disco single ‘You And I’. Premiering a few days ago on triple j Good Nights, ‘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.
Accompanying ‘You And I’ is the sunny B-Side ‘Le Soleil’, opening with an ode to the romance of the French dialect. Written in Brussels, ‘You And I’ and ‘Le Soleil’ were the product of moonlit nights between Owl Eyes and Belgian nu disco producer Aeroplane (Vito de Luca). Aeroplane's French house influence trickles throughout the tracks, both embodied with love and dedication, reflected as lessons that are pure and honest.
In celebration of the new single, Owl Eyes has also announced two headline shows for next month. Her first solo shows in quite some time, Owl Eyes’ unmistakable stage presence will light up Melbourne’s Abbotsford Convent on Thursday 16 May and the Grounds of Alexandria in Sydney on Thursday 23 May. Tickets are available now via Owl Eyes' website.
