Eve Owen is a British singer-songwriter. Following multiple performances with The National, including last month on Jimmy Kimmel Live in Brooklyn, NY, Eve Owen she announced the signing with 37d03d Records and the release of the debut album Don’t Let The Ink Dry which will be released on May 8th. It was produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner. We already shared “So Still For You”; “Blue Moon” is a new excerpt. Watch the official video below.
“‘Blue Moon’ is about unrequited love, but not the hurtful kind. It’s when you love someone so dearly that even if they turn out to be just a friend, you’re grateful. It’s just about being endeared by someone’s mere existence, nothing more nothing less. I think when you take it upon yourself to truly accept unrequited love and still keep it, is when you’re finally becoming stronger again,” explains Eve Owen. “It was the first time I ever sang with electric guitar as opposed to acoustic, and I think Aaron captured that curiosity and excitement of mine really delicately. We wanted to capture some sort of Stevie Nicks atmosphere where I was vocally more free and spontaneous.”
Hannah Owen adds about the video, “We wanted to scrapbook together moments from Eve’s life, to look at what her journey has been so far. I think that in a way, Eve’s music is about conversation, it’s her way of talking to herself. And in this video we wanted to push that idea further. What would it look like if Eve was dancing with her younger self? What would it look like if they were communicating with each other? ‘Blue Moon’ has a really raw and soulful sound. I just followed the simplicity and the power of the song, and experimented with how to echo that in the visuals.”
