Kelly Lee Owens unleashes Björk remix, announces London show

In Latest News, Magazine by pg-admin Comments

One of the most vital debuts of last year was the self-titled album from Kelly Lee Owens – a pristine opus of an album which was hauntingly evocative as it was thrillingly propulsive. It heralded the arrival of a singular new talent, with everyone from the Guardian and Mixmag to Vogue and Pitchfork all voting it as one of the albums of 2017.

Now, in the midst of a run of US live dates, Owens is announcing her biggest London show to date, with a gig at Village Underground in November – something that should prove an unmissable event. Also, in the wake of a run of incredible remixes for St Vincent, Jenny Hval and more, Owens has just remixed one of her all-time heroes, Björk, with an incredible rework of her track ‘Arisen My Senses‘ appearing on “slug genitalia” coloured vinyl alongside the likes of Jlin and Lanark Artefax.

Of the remix, Owens says, “I felt a standard techno // dance remix wouldn’t do all the juiciness of the track // stems justice .. this is one of the first times I used almost only the parts from the original artist, as they were too good not too!! I wanted to TRY to extract EVEN MORE joy ( if it’s poss) out of the sounds than when I first heard them – which is why the final “chorus” is so bright & shiny !! – full crescendo !!””

Björk says, “I am floored that there are musicians curious enough to take my music on: couldn’t be more excited about watching those in the coming years
