OWMI

Genre-bending debut album Tourner from new Copenhagen based duo

OWMI is a new Copenhagen based duo consisting of Jakob Miang and Bashir Billow.
Bashir and Jakob are raised in Denmark, but their roots extend all the way from East Africa over the Nordic countries to Brazil. Together they craft experimental sounds enriched by a backcloth of electronic soundscapes and soulful vocals.

With a deep affection for hand played music and the possibilities of present day music technology, OWMI invites you into an eclectic and memorable musical universe.

With the 20-minute runtime on their debut album, OWMI takes you on a tour through an emotional and musically curious landscape.
They create a genre-bending tapestry of 7 tracks, ranging from the hip-hop and house infused opening track Early Nothing to the 70s soul and jazz inspired ballad Beats And Lies.
The eclectic blend of styles is anchored by a soulful vocal telling tales of love, heartbreak and wishful thinking, but subjects stretches further to the seemingly heavier existential questions of purpose, self examination and the building of something new.

Pressing play you enter on the verge of day and night. Irregular rhythms open various scenes throughout the music. The album is tinged with darkness, but burns like a fire as well.
OWMI presents you with a forward thinking univers and balances organic instrumentation with electronic elements. Associations are many and easily connect you with Frank Ocean, Vampire Weekend, Dirty Projectors and Kendrick Lamar, but OWMI are without a doubt in a league of their own.

Jakob and Bashir met each-other a decade ago through a mutual friend. They started playing songs together with an acoustic guitar and vocals before eventually expanding to a full 7-piece band. The band played for several years at Copenhagen venues and around Denmark. Shortly after the band dissolved, Jakob and Bashir began working on demo’s together. They would later morph into the project OWMI.

"We try to tap into personal feelings and sensibilities in order to produce the best music we can at any given time. We insist on maintaining our curiosity and the willingness to learn. We always strive to be ready to embrace new and exciting ideas in the process, while keeping it fun."

Description of the album’s lead tracks:
Beats And Lies is a song that deals with the concept of creating something new. It’s about building a new stage, wearing new attires - and manifesting things of the imagination into something tangible. It embraces a hopeful, daring and entrepreneurial way of being.

Chenai is a song about the search for connection, while drifting out at sea. It’s about maintaining hope and keeping a fire burning - guiding your loved one safely to port.
