Wake Owl Explore 'The Private World of Paradise' on Debut Album, Premiere New Single
The album was produced by Richard Swift (Foxygen, Tennis, Laetitia Sadier) at his National Freedom studios in Oregon and features songwriter Colyn Cameron joined by multi-instrumentalist Aiden Briscall. According to a press release, the album offers an "upbeat atmospheric vibe."
Cameron said in a statement, "There's a lot more room in this batch of songs to explore live. This was a goal of ours from the outset of writing, trying to create space, so that live we could take people on more of a journey. The music is very visual for us, so there will be a strong visual element in the live set."
