Owl City’s new album will open with a mid-tempo song that details the beginnings of Adam’s music career. The chorus hooks are pretty solid, but what really makes this track shine are the story-telling qualities of its lyrics.
Adam sings about his very first meeting with a major label, reflecting on what he wishes he’d said back then: “Hey, there is more to me than meets the eye. […] Hey, I’m an oddity, and that’s alright. […] I ain’t a smooth-talker, but thanks for the Fiji water.”
With such well-written lines and upbeat melodies, this is a fitting opening track that makes you curious for the rest of the record.
