We have a video premiere today of a live session from Owen Tromans performing Golden Margins, the title track of his new album (out on 5th May via Sacred Geometry Records) and White Candle Road.
Owen Tromans grew up in The Black Country and led John Peel favourites San Lorenzo before pursuing a solo career that has seen him release several acclaimed albums and tour extensively, supporting the likes of Best Coast, Idlewild and Plush. Owen has also appeared on collections alongside Devendra Banhart, Mercury Rev, as well as members of Sonic Youth, and shared split singles with the likes of Wooden Wand.
On Golden Margins Owen reunites with his band, The Elders, to produce nine songs drawn from a deep well of inspiration. Recorded during the depths of winter in the Hampshire countryside the album channels ghostly chill and laid-back charm in equal measure, as though poised on the transition between the colder season and the spring that follows. The sense of seasonal ebb and flow is beautifully rendered by talented young producer Dan Parkinson.
