Owl Eyes (aka Brooke Addamo) has had quite the journey, from reaching the Top 11 in the 2008 Australian Idol series to wowing audiences with her sublime cover of Foster the People's "Pumped Up Kicks" in 2011. It seems not all hope was lost by her elimination in the Idol series, as she now has a set of 3 EPs under her belt and a debut album on the way titled Nightswim.
The lead single, "Closure," is absolute pop magic. Keep in mind that this young lady is only 22 years old, yet she produces music way beyond her years -- a testament to to her sheer determination and personal growth over the years. Glittering synths and angelic vocals over a deeply layered ethereal backdrop, not much more you could ask for from this single.
Nightswim is out April 19, 2013 and by the looks of things, it's going to impress.
