AUSTRALIAN PRODUCER KOWL RELEASES “STRUGGLE, PT. 1”
KOWL is the pseudonym of Hobart artist and producer Cal Young. Cal began his music career as one half of electro outfit The Scientists Of Modern Music. Praised for their energetic and engaging live performances at festivals, supporting national touring acts and headlining clubs around Australia. After taking a permanent hiatus from The Scientists Of Modern Music to pursue independent music interests, Cal began working with Hobart singer-songwriter Asta. Shortly after, Asta won Triple J Unearthed High 2012 with her song “My Heart Is On Fire” – a song which Cal produced in his bedroom (and follow up Asta single “I Need Answers”). “My Heart Is On Fire” placed at number 50 in Triple J’s 2012 Hottest 100 Countdown. Cal’s pursuit for creative enlightenment and love of production led him to create KOWL, his first independent musical endeavour.
KOWL combines the creativity of hardware and select sound formats from other projects and melds them together with a pop sensibility, to become a fresh new approach to song-writing and production. Whilst producing under KOWL, Cal is also one half of electro-pop group S L O W with singer/producer Calypso Brown and have recently been making waves in the world wide blogosphere with their debut self-titled EP.
Originally posted as a demo almost two years ago, “Struggle Pt.1 ” is offically released and shared with the world on July 1, 2016. Struggle Pt. 1” is an entirely instrumental track; great for any summer time mixtape. It features a groovy guitar riff backed by a heart thumping beat and a seductive saxophone. Accompanying these instruments is the flute, which seems to tie everything together serves as the song’s hook.
