Christopher Owens - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

We first became aware of the talents of Christopher Owens a few years ago through his band Girls. Their full-length debut was simply titled Album, and the dreamy songs on it recall warm and hazy California pop. Girls went on to release one more full-length album and an EP before breaking up in 2012. Without wasting much time at all, Owens got straight to work and released his solo debut, Lysandre, a year later. Incredibly, he has already made his second solo album.
