Owen Duff – “The One for Me You Are”


The latest charmer from Owen Duff, “The One for Me You Are” breezily touts chamber-pop and folk aesthetics. Flourishing orchestral components glide majestically amidst Duff’s serene vocal pull and elegant piano backing. A striking bridge, approaching the two-minute mark, sees the orchestral components rise in gradual, climactic form alongside escalating vocals. A gorgeous chamber-pop spectacle, with rising and falling strings, follows. This particular track reminds me fondly of Neil Hannon’s The Divine Comedy. Once again, Owen Duff impresses with catching songwriting and vibrant production.

“The One for Me You Are” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2021’ Spotify playlist.
