ALMOST OWEN, “State of Mind”
I’ve written about the music of Boston’s indie alt.rocker Almost Owen several times over the past few years. He’s an inventive songwriter, singer and musician who has unique perspectives on life that get translated into song. I didn’t connect with many of his songs last year, but “State of Mind” is a refreshing and joyous anthem that he wrote as a way to break out of the pandemic rut that we’ve all experienced. The video is bright and uplifting, and we now get to see an updated visual side of Almost Owen that only makes you want more. I particularly like his vocal in “State of Mind”, it seems to have drawn some soulful inspiration from Jamie Foxx’s “Blame It”. All I can ask is for more songs like “State of Mind” please!
