Hot Video Alert: Sky Sailing - Brielle
If you think Sky Sailing sounds similar to Owl City...there's a reason for that. There's a common denominator called Adam Young. Sky Sailing is Adam Young, just like Owl City is Adam Young.
An Airplane Carried Me To Bed is the 'debut' album from Sky Sailing and was actually written and recorded long before Owl City every came to fruition. Released by Young's label Universal as an afterthought, likely in an effort to bank on the success of Owl City, Sky Sailing is the acousti-pop version of Owl City. If Owl City was stripped down, you'd have Sky Sailing. This is actually a smart idea if you think about it. Given the runaway success of "Fireflies," I don't blame the label for trying to milk Young for all he's worth. As feel goody and saccharine as his songwriting style might be, he's got a certain amount of charm. Young's vocal style just draws you in. Sky Sailing is the perfect adult contemporary compromise. For the crowd that thought Owl City was TOO dancey for their liking, Sky Sailing satisfies. An Airplane Carried Me To Bed is out now.
