Folk rock duo Owen-Glass have released their latest single, “Saint.” The new track comes from Owen-Glass’ upcoming debut album The Rope & The Rabbit, out May 10th. Illuminated by an electric violin solo, “Saint” is soaring and psychedelic, taking listeners on a journey through the complexities of standing your ground as an individual while serving as a reminder of the strength that comes with owning who you are and having the courage to live life according to your own personal truth.
Of the track, Owen-Glass said, “It’s about the feeling of isolation or ostracization that comes when you embrace the sort of rugged individualism it takes to really think freely and critically. When you’re pushing hard, trying to find truth, something to hold onto that is uniquely yours—something that gives your life unique meaning and purpose—you’re going to alienate and offend people along the way. When you involve yourself in the world of ideas, there will be people, sometimes people you truly love and respect, even, who will reject you. They may think you’re evil, they may think you’re crazy. And that’s a really emotional experience.”
Based in Texas, Owen-Glass delivers a larger than life sound, weaving in the heartfelt organic glory of Americana and the powerful charge of gospel while boasting the drama of wild rock violin, grand alto saxophone, ’70s-style keys, and electric mandolin. Fortified by rich textured soundscapes and smart lyrics, the end result is soul-enamoring, compelling, and easy to listen to.
