Los Angeles-based producer and singer-songwriter andreas owens delivers a crisp blend of laid-back R&B filled with soothing yet charismatic elements in his debut EP ‘almost everything I’ve ever wanted to say’, a five-track release that serves up a sultriness with its flavoursome nature on offer.
Throughout the duration of ‘almost everything I’ve ever wanted to say’, what is clear from the outset is owens’ focus on a well-polished base of lounge-styled beats lathering us up alongside the charismatic bass lines and keys that intertwine with those irresistible melodies that are to die for. Combining a pop influence with a hint of lo-fi elements, andreas owens delivers a fresh and open soundscape that not only is extremely expansive but also charming with its alluring approach.
“‘almost everything i’ve ever wanted to say’ is truthfully that — it is in every way, nearly everything I’ve ever wanted to say musically, lyrically, sonically, experimentally, and emotionally. For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to create and complete a work like this; something where I’ve sat in my room and slowly worked from beginning to end without any real goal in mind. Almost like I’m reading a book about my life, piecing together one experience after another but not quite knowing where or how the story ends.” – andreas owens
