Kelly Lee Owens - Inner Song
Published: 11:37 am, September 24, 2020Words: Martyn Young.

Kelly Lee Owens’ second album ‘Inner song’ is a record born from elemental qualities and built up by the producer into a rich tapestry of beats, melodies and sounds that see her explore her musical psyche in ever deeper and more evocative ways.

Samples and found sounds from nature and the elements form the bedrock of a collection where Owens puts her voice and lyrics to the forefront. Stark, emotional and full of resonant honesty the result is a moving and tender record that still manages to bubble, rumble and thrill with ground shaking beats and idiosyncratic electronic flourishes. Everything is perfectly realised. From the gorgeous cover of Radiohead’s ‘Arpeggi’ to the emotional propulsive march of ’On’, it’s a record that takes you on a real sonic journey.

An album for the head, heart and body in equal measure it’s a striking and significant step forward from an artist at the top of her game.
