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’ (Sony France/Jive/Epic) reverberate with the tremors of midnight, and the eerie afterglow of dancefloors long abandoned. It is however, in the more reflective, pensive songs like Free or Silence where Owlle’s unmistakable songwriting talent lies.
It was discovering the music and installation work of Brian Eno that changed her life. She encountered his piece, “Quiet Club,” and knew that her art was about to be channelled into a new medium: music. “From that moment, the door was open!”
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.
With a handful of single and remixes already earning early buzz and a budding fascination from the American and British press the time is right for Owlle to conquer the night and launch herself into the pop stratosphere with her début album France.
‘A captivating voice that resonates with the sound of midnight with the hauntingly sweet tonality of darkness and solitude.’
‘Eerie, angelic voice.’
‘Uber cool French singer.’

‘Owlle reminds us a little bit of Kate Bush-meets-Bat for Lashes, topped off with plenty of attitude.’
