RELEASES SULTRY NEW SINGLE ‘YOU DON’T KNOW LOVE (FEAT. TAPZ)’
+ PLAYING BEYOND THE VALLEY AND FOR THE LOVE FESTIVALS THIS SUMMER
Mushroom are delighted to unveil the hauntingly beautiful new single ‘ You Don’t Know Love’ (feat. TYAPZ) from Australian alt-pop darling Owl Eyes. The track is lifted off her forthcoming EP Invisible Woman, scheduled for release in January 2020.
Premiered yesterday via triple j Good Nights, ‘You Don’t Know Love’ is a slice of neo soul that sees Owl Eyes experiment with a darker, sassier sound, as her sultry vocals glide above a theatrical RnB percussion. Joining her on the track is New York based, New Zealand-via-Zimbabwean artist TAPZ, who’s alluring vocal caresses the shimmering jazz leaning production, and sits in perfect symmetry against Owl Eyes signature heavenly voice.
TAPZ recently dropped the experimental two-track release ‘Trust/No Stars In The Daylight’ which masterfully blends elements of hip-hop, RnB and punk and highlight him as a versatile artist on the verge of global success. The double release also came with the news that TAPZ will release his Trust No Stars In The Daylight EP next month.
Owl Eyes’ previous singles ‘You and I’/Le Soleil’ and ‘On Me’, marked the beginning of a fresh era for the Melbourne artist, offering the first peek at new music since her 2013 debut LP Nightswim. ‘On Me’ (accompanied by the stunning a cappella version) was met with acclaim from fans and critics alike seeing the song added to triple j and clocking over 1.2 million Spotify streams.
Following 2 sold out shows in Sydney and Melbourne earlier this year, Owl Eyes will be treating audiences to live renditions of ‘You Don’t Know Love’ and new material from Invisible Woman on the summer festival circuit with appearances at Beyond The Valley, NYE in the Park, Wine Machine and new national touring festival For The Love, plus an international appearance at Japan’s Snow Machine.
With a voice of velvet and musical instincts that are both modern and chic, Owl Eyes is delivering some of her most honest and personal music to date. Watch this space as she has more delightful gems that will be revealed soon.
