In February, Kelly Lee Owens released her debut single 'Lucid'. Produced by Owens herself along with Ghost Culture, it was the perfect mix of dreamlike vocals and lurid synth. The 12” not only announced her on the electronic stage but her intentions too. It showed that she was capable of not only writing emotive music but, through captivating hushed, almost whispered vocals, she could pull you in like a siren.
Owens has now released her follow up to 'Lucid'. 'Uncertain' sounds like Julee Cruise being produced by Daniel Avery, at his most ethereal and ambient, is another reason to get excited about her slowly rising star. Again, lurid music drifts through her mist-like vocals as 'Uncertain' gently sways one way and another, all underpinned by a slowly surging bassline rumble.
Rumour has it that a debut album is being constructed as we speak and, if her recent live show was anything to go by, Owens will be very busy and on call for the rest of the year. This is definitely one new artist whose future is anything but uncertain!
Kelly Lee Owens' 'Uncertain' is out on 31st July. Hear it here.
