Owl City Wants To Release 'Screamo' Album In Future

American synthpop/electronica producer Adam Young - a.k.a Owl City - has confessed that although he loves his brand of synth-driven music, he’d love to try a different genre out in future: hardcore screamo!

The highly prolific star, who releases his fourth studio album in as many years later this month, is enjoying his growing success, with his Owl City project constantly reaching new heights. But, while he’s becoming a star in that genre, he’d also like to try his hand at a rather different style of music - screamo.

“Growing up I was really into the whole underground, obscure, artsy, heavy, screamo, chaotic, angry, angst music,” he told The BBC. “I love it. That was my thing - that's what I identified with. I grew up wanting to do nothing else except for that. I haven't had a chance to do it, and do it right.”

He continued: “I feel like I could do it right. Do it all myself and record it all and make it sound good. It's tempting. It might go over the heads of my fans but it might open some new doors and that's what it's all about. Every now and again I need to put on one of my old records which make me feel that same thing. There's a place for that.”

This October, Young will be bringing his laptop and synths (and not the Horizon) on tour of the UK. If you’re a fan, you can grab tickets by checking the dates and details below.
