owl-city-ocean-eyes

Okay so someone had to do it…

I’ve been listening to this song for about a week now and I just can’t make up my mind if it’s super cheesy or indie-cool.  The vocals are a little whiny for me but sort of melodic at the same time; stylistically, it reminds me of a cross between The Postal Service and Lights

Owl City is actually the music project of 23 year old Adam Young from Minnesota.  On his newest album “Ocean Eyes” he collaborates with a female vocalist, Breanne Duren on a  number of tracks.  Check out his website http://www.owlcitymusic.com/.  His North American tour includes a stop in Vancouver at The Biltmore on October 15th.

So what do you think?  Cheesy or good?
