Owl City official tag
Owl City is an electronica musical project by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adam Young. Young created the project while experimenting with music in his parents' basement. Owl City developed a following on the social networking site Myspace, like many musicians who achieved success in the late 2000s, before signing with Universal Republic in 2008. Owl City's is known for it's break out single "Fireflies".
Pop sensation Owl City is getting a second chance at penning songs for movies. This time around, the hit maker penned a track for the upcoming Disney film Wreck-It Ralph.
The track is somewhat of a typical track from Owl City. The rhythm section is upbeat, with some bubbly synth layering the high end. Adam's vocals also sound a bit more synthesized than normal. Overall, I like the track for what it is. Stream the track at the link below. Also, have you checked out Owl City's newest album "The Midsummer Station"? If so, what's your favorite track?

Owl City's sound thus far has been mostly from the mind of Adam Young himself. On his next album, "The Midsummer Station", Adam stepped outside of his comfort zone to work with other writers and producers to see where it could take him. This short documentary gives a little insight to Adam's thoughts about his next record and working with new people.
"The Midsummer Station" featuring the single "Good Time" featuring Carly Rae Jepson hit iTunes and store shelves next week on August 20th.

There's something incredibly endearing about the humble attitude Adam Young, who records under the moniker Owl City, projects when he discusses his work.
n a world where style is often touted over substance, it's refreshing to find a musician who takes joy in crafting music that echoes the title of the his latest release, "All Things Bright and Beautiful."
