Album Premiere: Mystic by Owen Davies


Ottawa Showbox is pumped to present the full-length premiere of the first album to grace So Sorry Records: Mystic by Owen Davies.

I’m a Mystic / I’m an animal,” croons Davies on the title track of his debut solo album. It almost feels like the climax of part 1, with “Quai Des Brumes” as a recharging intermission, and part 2 beginning with “Wild Child”. However they are ordered—here they are, the nine precious stones finally uncovered.

They speak for themselves, these snippets of alt pop or new folk or whatever you want to call them. Can we describe this sound? No, we better not. Have an exclusive listen before the album is available to buy on Aug. 1. The Gatineau hills will welcome Davies for his album release show in two Saturdays at the Blacksheep Inn, and we’ll be there!

  • […] Owen Davies is at it again, collaborating with director Pascal Huot for his latest video “Mystic” off his new album of the same title coming out August 1. Although Davies isn’t technically Ottawa-based, he works closely with Huot (member of Pony Girl) and the new label So Sorry Records which is based in the nation’s capital. If there’s one thing you will learn about Davies and Huot in their creative endeavours it is that they are unrestrained and unflinching when it comes to the unordinary. Davies refuses to maintain a specific folk “sound” – he’d rather experiment with textures and electronic elements while keeping the folk essence at the core. Be warned – this video starts out nice and peaceful, but the ending is PG-13 due to blood and gore. Stream Owen Davies’ new album Mystic exclusively here. […]
