Dare I say, Owen Pallett is the next Ben Gibbard. I think I’m more of a fan already. Really, if you have listened to this song for 2 minutes and haven’t said “wow,” music probably isn’t “your thing.” This guy oozes talent, and even if you haven’t heard of him, you’ve definitely heard him. He either played violin or did the string arrangements for the likes of The Arcade Fire, Fucked Up, Beirut, Grizzly Bear, and Death From Above 1979. Surprising right? And he really sounds like he has been working on his singing as he does all this because his voice floats into high registers as smooth as anyone. I really wish I found this guy early.
