Kelly Lee Owens may be an unfamiliar name, but her voice should be recognisable, especially fans of Daniel Avery and Ghost Culture, having collaborated with both on their excellent, recent records.
However, the London producer and vocalist is carving out a rising reputation in her own right. Earlier this year Owens released a two track single ‘Lucid/Arthur’ and at the end of July, she is releasing ‘Uncertain’ paired with a club reworking of the aforementioned ‘Lucid’. ‘Uncertain’ is a haunting piece of gothic pop. Filled with swirling textures and atmospherics, an ominous bassline and sweeping orchestral string arrangements conspire to create an otherworldly backdrop for Owens’ ethereal vocals to mesmerise and enchant in equal measure. Murky, chilling and foreboding but equally, it is utterly beautiful.
Owens second EP, Uncertain is released on July 31st. You can listen to ‘Uncertain’ and a snippet of the club reworked ‘Lucid’, below now.
