The lyrics of Ordinary Day are truly remarkable. They’re a waking meditation on sleepwalking through life and all of the beauty and peace that can be found in the simple things. Owen describes the song as “stripped to the bones,” and it’s easy to see why. There’s something so powerfully affecting about the way he sings with nothing but a muted acoustic guitar and shakers. The song gradually builds into a lush landscape of beautifully atmospheric textures and colors, taking the listener on a journey to a place of inner happiness.
In a world where people are constantly inundated with over-the-top and in-your-face music, Almost Owen’s latest song Ordinary Day is a refreshing reminder to slow down and enjoy the moment. It has a minimalist pop sound that’s certain to be loved by fans of Shawn Mendes and Ed Sheeran.
