Owl City's "European Trance Influenced"...

Posted by: Jason Tate (03/21/12)
In his most recent blog, Owl City stated that his new record will be released in August. He also said it's going to be very different than his previous stuff focusing more on his influence from European trance.
From the BlogAesthetically the record sounds a lot different as well. New flavors and textures and consistencies of melody, rhythm and lyric. Much of my love for European dance music has found its way into the production of the record and I’ve been able to utilize my deep inspiration and admiration of the great trance dj’s I grew up listening to (Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, ATB, Ferry Corsten, Paul van Dyk, Above and Beyond). It’s still very much an electronic pop record but one with more energy and spirit and frame of reference. I believe you should never repeat yourself or look back on your career, and this record marks new territory to which I’ll admit, is a bit exhilarating on both sides of the scale because it’s so different, but I believe that sense of ambiguity in the balance is an incredibly healthy thing because it reminds you that you’re adapting and refining and perfecting your craft, and ultimately, continuously trying something new.

This actually could be great. Those are the exact same artists in this genre I listened to as well. I still haven't found anyone new who does this style better than ATB. "Made of Glass" is such a classic.

Does he think he's better off alone?

Oddly it was the clear euro dance elements of Ocean Eyes that made it a listenable album for me. I'd rather hear more of this from him and less sappy lyrics about going to the dentist.
