TILT Spotlight: Liza Owen
21-year-old singer/songwriter Liza Owen just dropper her debut track “Mind Blown”. Taking cultural and musical influences from multi-cultural roots, the half British/Cambodian songstress incorporates Asian samples, huge pop vocals and bass-heavy choruses to show us what she’s really made of.
With her ferocious style and exoticism, immediate comparisons to the more innovative and groundbreaking performers such as MIA and Gwen Stefani come to light. Hate to compare you that way, Liza, if you’re reading this — I know that’s the last thing you want when you’re striving for originality. But we hope you know it’s a compliment. 🙂
Liza’s take on pop music is more than refreshing, as her sound breaks the modern pop mould and if this one says anything about Liza’s forthcoming EP (set to be released in September), I think we’re in for a real treat!
I’m fuckin’ with you Liza Owen. I don’t know if I’ve ever really had my mind blown. But this is pretty close.
