Owlle ist ein Hingucker mit rubinroter Mähne, stahlblauen Augen und himmlisch anmutendem Outfit. Sie hat eine Vorliebe für bezaubernde Märchen, Trip Hop und Brian Eno: man stelle sich eine Mischung aus Madonna und den Pet Shop Boys mit Einschlägen von Pina Bausch und Florence vor. Am 28. November ist sie beim CHIC SCHNACK FESTIVAL im Berliner FluxBau zu bewundern.


28.11.2014 – Berlin – FluxBau – CHIC SCHNACK Festival

In a world of 24 hour party girls, Owlle is the rare creature of night who finds her bliss in solitude. Her shadowy electropop tunes, like breakout singles “Ticky Ticky” and “Disorder”, reverberate with the tremors of midnight, and the eerie afterglow of dancefloors long abandoned. They feel both futuristic and ancient — as does everything Owlle creates. Even her chosen name evokes the secretive powers of the sagely, nocturnal woodland creature. Owlle (real name France, and yes, she’s French) likes to call her music ‘dream pop’, not so much referring to the classic genre of the same name, but a general otherworldliness she admires.

As a result, her sound is “something both melancholic and very danceable”, Owlle says. Owlle’s background in fine art allows her to create a distinct world around her. From her art direction and cinematography to costuming choices, Owlle’s mesmerizing imagery is just as important as the music itself. The Owlle experience defies being contained to one form: the sound, style, and visuals must be taken as one convergent reality — a reality of a young artist’s own creation.

Not surprisingly, her influences are cross-cultural pioneers, and range from modern artist Pierre Huyghes to designer Hussein Chalayan to legendary dance instructor Pina Bausch. Musically, childhood idols Bronski Beat, to 90s Madonna, to peers like Frank Ocean have made a strong impression on Owlle. But it was discovering the music and installation work of Brian Eno that changed her life. Determined to make music but with no classical experience, Owlle simply forged her own path, first discovering her voice, then teaching herself instruments. Before long, she was birthing the early stages of the Owlle universe. Only a few short years later, she landed a windfall request: her first ever remix. The artist who requested it? Depeche Mode. “It was beyond thrilling!” Owlle exclaims, of her synth idols contacting her. Not only did she deliver an excellent remix of their track “Heaven” that won her early media acclaim, she earned the validation needed to take her own art to the next level. Like Eno, she was learning to strike the right music and multimedia balance.

Now heading into 2014, Owlle is poised to launch herself into the pop stratosphere. Her debut album, France, hit the stores in February. Now, to play at CHIC SCHNACK FESTIVAL!
