Listen: Owen Rabbit - Holy Holy
Owen Rabbit’s new single, Holy Holy, is a uniquely textured soundscape of soul and electronica.
Melbourne-based producer and songwriter Owen Rabbit delivers some seriously crunchy laidback beats in his new single, Holy Holy. It’s the latest release from this multi-instrumentalist who merges elements of electronica and jazz into a mix of crisp beats and soulful vocals. Owen Rabbit’s own vocals sound like an intriguing mix of Chet Faker and Tom Vek, but the track is ultimately personal: "I wrote Holy Holy about my mental state and abusing my health as a means of self medication. Without a god and a guided sense of morality it can be hard to find a compelling reason to be healthy. Art and creation from pain has been a cathartic sort of therapy, and has given me acceptance."
Beginning with a minimalist electronic verse, Holy Holy unfurls with wonky synth drops into a richly textured atmosphere. In addition to the success of his latest single, Owen Rabbit has just been confirmed alongside Boo Seeka to support SAFIA on their Embracing Me national tour in August/September (Check all the dates HERE). Holy Holy is available on iTunes and Spotify, and check back when the SAFIA tour begins, we'll be running a weekly tour diary from Owen's point of view to see how it all pans out.
