Owen Hackett - Dive

November 20, 2020

There are artists for whom we have an immediate crush. And it is sometimes difficult to explain. When we hear the first notes of 'Dive', Owen Hackett's new single, it is as if lightning has fallen on us. If you need a thrill, you've come to the right place. In a very relaxing atmosphere, with magnificent choral harmonies, the artist from Southampton offers us his tender and cold universe at the same time, a striking contrast which, although surprising at the beginning, ends up seducing us. Only 26 years old, Owen already has the mature writing of an accomplished artist. His voice is a tool that he masters perfectly. We also like the very professional side, both of the production and of the music video, which brings into play sublime contrasts of natural light. Included in our "Indie Folk" playlist, and of course, you will now hear this amazing track on the Indie Music Radio.

Owen Hackett's point of view :

Dive is about overcoming self-doubt to discover newfound enthusiasm and positivity. I hope that this song can carry people through this time, in the same way it has me,” explains Hackett. “I wanted to capture what I like about lots of my favourite songwriters - Feist, Eels and Wilco are often unpredictable as artists and so I've tried push my horizons.
