It's obviously great to hear something new from him, but, country isn't really what I was hoping for laugh.gif hopefully the album isn't going to have a lot of this sort of thing, although Humbug wasn't much different in some aspects (but comparing it to the preview it's still better by a fair margin)

I want to know why TWO people thought Owl City now goes in the indie forum.

(okay, okay, this is way more acoustic than his past stuff but if past form is anything to go by it won't stay that way)

song's k if a bit sub-Plain White Ts, it's clearly riding on its lyrical content which is sweet, I guess.

Well this thread is solely for the individual song - and the preview sounded a LOT more indie than pop so I'd say it belongs here tongue.gif

can guarantee that if he was a girl this'd be a certain Pop post though. although let's be real 90% of what's posted in this forum is pop with a guitar., pop with 'unusual' synths or pop with a reedy voice - I like that stuff but it's the truth, and I've only gone in on OC because he's always been a pop post (to get immediately buried) in the past.

and the practice is keep all songs by artists to one forum but I only care enough to write posts about it and not to do actual moderator work about it so w/e, if the indie mods want to move it it's on them.

I think the general "rule" is once an artist is usually following a certain genre, all future threads discussing the artist is in the same forum regardless of the genre, I think.

Growing to this a bit, especially this acoustic version which sounds more exciting:



(also yay at him FINALLY ditching the blonde)

Right. The mods can move it if they please, that's cool, but from my perspective this was an indie song judging by the (VERY vague) 15 second clip. I'm not saying that Owl City is an indie act or anything, it just felt right to categorise it in indie for the time being.

(also considering I've listened to barely any of his stuff let alone shown even the most fleeting of interests in him on Buzzjack, there was no way for me to know he was a pop act primarily..)

Listening to All Things Bright And Beautiful and previous (and Ultraviolet really) is probably a more accurate definition of 'Owl City' than this tongue.gif

also: Owl City is too unique to be considered Pop imo ph34r.gif

Hence Chainsmokers - Paris being in dance when it isn't a dance song, and also Calvin Harris' latest two singles being in dance rather than R&B and urban where they should be genre wise.

I am up for changing that rule tbh.

Btw the song is quite good imo.

I guess it's a bit like the likes of Nizlopi - JCB song with its sentimental lyrics, especially as it is about the same theme, a father.

I know why the rule exists though, example being if you want to find a list of threads for an artist who likes to experiment with multiple genres, especially if it's an album thread with multiple genre tracks, or you're doing a rate or general thread for the artist, it's just easier having it all in one place.

Exactly. It's for ease of use and so we don't have multiple threads started in different forums every time someone does a bit of pleasant artist experimentation. The forums aren't meant to autistically categorise every new release ever (we'd need jazz, country, folk, classical and metal if we wanted to do that (and most of those now get lumped in here if anything)), they're meant to group similar types of music so that people know what forums they're likely to find stuff they like in.

hence while I don't consider Lorde/Marina/Coldplay/Oh Wonder/modern-day Paramore indie in the slightest I'm not really calling for them to be kicked into pop because I recognise that they have that slant and that they likely appeal to the posters who check in here more often, I never check in Pop these days as I'm not interested in most of the stuff that's there. Owl City doesn't really have that slant and he's been the definition of geek-pop for the last few years, a less credible and more synth-heavy Death Cab as he was, but he's clearly doing his own thing now and he may have changed tack completely so I/indie mods will make an OFFICIAL decision (as much as it matters) once I hear more.
