Owen Shares “Beaucoup,” Announces New Album

Owen announces the new album The Falls of Sioux, Co-produced by Sean Carey (Bon Iver) and Zach Hanson (Bon Iver, Low, Waxahatchee) and out April 26th on Polyvinyl Record Co. As the solo vehicle for the widely influential songwriting of Mike Kinsella (whose prolific output includes roles along the way in American Football, Cap’n Jazz, LIES, and other collaborative ventures), Owen has charted the evolution and sharpening of his craft with each new chapter. Along with today’s announcement, we are also treated to the lead single and video for “Beaucoup”. A song that exemplifies the ways in which Kinsella’s sound palette has been influenced heavily by his recent work with his cousin Nate in their boundary-pushing group LIES. Experimenting with the limits of electronic production inspired Kinsella to lean into sounds he hadn’t considered before when writing for Owen. On “Beaucoup”, acoustic guitar strums are slowly washed up against by a bedding of shoegaze texture, a deep synth bass sequence, and waves of noisy electronics.

The music video was filmed in a private Chicago speakeasy, hidden behind a door inside a janitor’s closet. “I’m not sure if ‘Beaucoup’ is a lusty Love Song or a lovely Lust Song,” says Kinsella. “Everyone at Weird Life did a great job capturing the seedy side of it, as well as the shimmery/flirty side, visually hitting (and bending) the same note between the notes for the music video.”
