New Jersey-based indie outfit OWEL has signed to Equal Vision Records for the release of their sophomore full-length, Dear Me, which was co-produced by vocalist Jay Sakong and Gates' vocalist Kevin Dye. Dear Me serves as the follow-up to Every Good Boy EP (2015) and the band's eponymous debut (2013).

Featuring delicate, dreamy vocals with lush five-part harmonies, elegant string arrangements and a tasteful touch of electronic elements throughout, the band has created a truly stunning sound here that is all their own and simultaneously feels classic and modern. On Dear Me, dramatic crescendos and dynamic soundscapes weave behind ethereal vocals, gracefully leading listeners on a phenomenal sonic journey of reflection, curiosity and contemplation.

"The songs on this record feel a lot like diary entries to me. In this case, the phrase ‘Dear Me' can be read as both an expression of regret and the beginning of a letter to oneself. I see it as both," notes Sakong. "A lot of the songs on the self-titled album dealt with guilt and maybe even a bit of self-loathing. And while some of those feelings may still linger on the new record, I think for the most part the newer songs reflect a slightly more optimistic state of mind."
