She continued: “My creative life and everything I’d worked for up to that point was deeply impacted. I wasn’t sure if I could make anything anymore, and it took quite a lot of courage to get to a point where I could create again.”

Speaking about the album’s title, which is taken from an album by jazz musician Alan Silva, Owens added: “[It] really reflects what it felt like to make this record…I did a lot of inner work in the past few years, and this is a true reflection of that.”

Speaking about Owen’s debut in 2017, NME said: “Previously a member of indie group The History Of Apple Pie, the Welsh musician’s debut is a far cry from the sickly-sweet indie-pop they excelled in.

“Instead, her self-titled solo debut is a journey through house, techno, ambient sounds, indie and pop. On each track, Owens breaks new ground on her unpredictable album. From the dreamy ‘Keep Walking’ to the club-ready banger ‘Evolution’, Owens proves that her diverse musical identity is a beautiful and intriguing thing, indeed.”
