ABOUT THE RELEASE


Owun appears in Grenoble, France, during the year 1992.

The five-member band releases their first demo in 1995.
« Petits Contes pour Enfants », their first album, released in 1996, introduces their style by a blend of noise, hardcore & new wave.

The Owun quintet are then deeply rooted in the underground scene and share many a stage with Ulan Bator, Hint, Portobello Bones, Seven Hate, Tantrum, Condense and also UI, Laddio Bolocko, Cave

Their second opus, « Sillon » (1998), an 80s-flavored album rich in kitsch reverb effects, is produced by Jungle Productions and distributed by Tripsichord.

They open for japanese psychedelic band Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso UFO during their french tour in 1999.

Owun partially disbands to record their third album « Ostensible? » (2001), which leaves only three membres in its wake. Ambient/drone & electro are now part of the equation.
This closes Owun‘s first chapter.

Fast-forward to 2007. The project is resurrected by the same last three members and a new guitarist. The formula tours regularly and records another album in 2011, « Le Fantôme de Gustav ».
Noise, shoegaze, new wave, drone & ambient, electro and still that hardcore edge below… Owun‘s complex sound universe takes another step forward. This new release is well-received far and wide by critics.

From 2014 to 2017, Owun, now a trio again, focus on yet another effort. Their meeting with the label [reafførests] results in a series of powerful shows and quality videos.
« 2.5 », Owun‘s latest creature of an album, and the fifth to date, is to be released in February 2017 by [reafførests]. It will be distributed by Atypeek Music.

The band will embark on a promotional tour through France, featuring the solo act Lynhood as an opening, during February 2017.
