{Owen Pallett}


Formerly known as Final Fantasy, Owen Pallett returns with his first album under his given name.

Whereas some bands take orchestral elements and add them to traditional pop or rock, Pallett focuses on the orchestration first. My instant favorite is the violin plunking second track “Keep the Dog Quiet” with the first line 'My body is a cage', referencing Arcade Fire’s song of the same name. Pallett helped write string arrangements for Arcade Fire’s albums, and even toured with them, so that's no accident.
