A music blog from Ireland.
The first song I ever heard by Owensie when he set off in a new direction with his solo work was Ronda, a beautifully-bare tune that sang of the white light and gold hills of Spain. That was two years ago and in the time since, Owensie’s really found his feet, releasing an album Aliens on OOAL earlier this year and enjoying a plentiful run of gigs in its wake. And if that’s not enough, there’s I Saw The Flashing Lights, a set of great remixes by several new Irish musicians, the latest of which is this gorgeously-laid back, deep-vibe Ronda - Junebug Remix by the new kid on the beats Toby Kaar.
You can hear other I Saw The Flashing Lights remixes by Lar Kaye, Sert One and Bantum over on Soundcloud. They’re all free to download and marvel over. Check out the original Aliens album on Bandcamp.
Toby Kaar is currently touring with Gold Panda. He plays Cork tonight and Dublin tomorrow and comes highly recommended.
