Before There Was Owl City, There Was Sky Sailing
“An amazing year” doesn’t even begin to describe the journey Adam Young has been on since 2009. That’s when he released his song “Fireflies” under the name [lastfm]Owl City[/lastfm]. He almost immediately rocketed to pop stardom and watched his single top the charts in the US and UK.
Before all that began, Young had written and recorded a concise indie rock album called An Airplane Carried Me To Bed. [lastfm]Sky Sailing[/lastfm] is what Young named the “band” behind this project, and this week it’s being released to the public for the first time.
