Kelly Lee Owens isn’t one to stay in her comfort zone. Often compared to an early Bjork and with al the quirkiness and unpredictability that comes with it, Owens was last seen remixing tunes for fellow synth lover Jenny Hval but released her second single ‘Uncertain’ not so long ago and is gearing up to release an album.
While we wait for whatever magic comes out of Owens’ box of tricks though, she’s delved into the realm of R&B to tackle a bona fide classic: Aaliyah’s ‘More Than A Woman.’ While the original is airy and spacious, with great production from Timbaland, Owens has put a dense spin on the track, making it more claustrophobic and certainly muddier. Taking on Aaliyah isn’t for the faint of heart, but Owens’ versatility means she pulls it off easily.
