Owl City – Tour Dates and Fireflies Remixes

If you haven’t heard about this seriously enchanting bedroom project by dazed and daydreamed teen, Adam Young (A.K.A. Owl City), then you’re seriously missing out. When I first heard Owl City I was instantly drawn in – the twinkling electronics, the synth vocals, it is like a joyful flying bubble of electro-pop that is getting some serious love across the globe. The fairytale sound is accompanied by innocent, whimsical, far away tree-esque lyrics that are demonstrative of a vastly optimistic and imaginative mind, “most of my inspiration comes from daydreaming, as I haven’t really gone anywhere or done anything. I find a lot of inspiration in imagining what the world would be like if things were different — better.” It’s like the musical equivalent of AVATAR – flying through a different, perfect world, appreciating the intricate, the beautiful and the unusual.

Owl City’s debut single, Fireflies has already sold 2 million copies in the US and has gained number ones chart positions in 6 countries. All he has to do now is make himself known to the UK. Which is exactly what he’s doing next month on his tour (which is NEARLY sold out) with the lovely ‘Lights’ supporting. I would get in there very very quickly if you want to go and see this gig as there really aren’t a lot of tickets left – so don’t miss out!

Here are the tour dates:

17th Feb: Komedia – Brighton
18th Feb: Electric Ballroom – London
19th Feb: O2 Academy – Oxford
20th Feb: O2 Academy – Newcastle
21st Feb: O2 Academy – Birmingham
22nd Feb: Manchester Academy

Owl City’s debut single, Fireflies is out 22nd Feb – alongside his debut album, Ocean Eyes.

I have attached two great remixes of Fireflies as a prelude of what’s to come from this great artist. The first is Leo Zero’s magic dub remix, and the second is a mix by Marlow. Enjoy!
