"You would not believe your eyes, if 10 million fireflies, lit up the earth as I fell asleep"
Would you believe your ears if I told you that I loved the sound of "Owl City".
One night I'm driving home from dance rehearsal, and i hear this really catchy synth sound on the radio, than the beat dropped and the lyrics came flying out at me through the speakers, it made me happy actually. My ears smiled with relief as my brain thought "Something new". I immediately wanted to know who the hell this is.
It wasn't until almost a week later, I woke up to that catchy synth, and as my ears smiled again, as my eyes opened slowly to see the name "OWL CITY" and the title of the track was "Fire Flies." My body soon followed my ears and eyes, as I hopped up and danced around my room. I was excited about something new!
"Owl City is an American synthpop musical project by Adam Young. Young started out making music in his parents' basement in Owatonna, Minnesota which he claims is a result of his insomnia.
"Young's influences are disco and European electronic music. After two independent albums, Owl City gained mainstream popularity from the 2009 major label debut album Ocean Eyes, which spawned the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 #1 hit single "Fireflies". "Fireflies" topped the US and Canadian charts and became the most-downloaded song on iTunes in the US, and the album Ocean Eyes reached the top ten on the US album charts and topped the US electronic charts. Ocean Eyes also reached Amazon MP3's top 10 most downloaded album list. By December 2009, it was certified Gold in the United States."
Adam Young has given my ears something to smile about!
