‘Woozy, playful, warm’ | Interview with Pet Owner

With synth sounds and drum machines straight from the 80’s, ambient vocals and an intricately designed minimal chord progression, Pet Owner’s t-t-t will make you start dancing without even realising it. Available in a white Cassette. Sweet!

Describe your sound in 3 words

Woozy, playful, warm

t-t-t feels very energetic with a retro touch. However in your album, the listener can find moments of calmness too. Tell us a few things about Natural Behaviour. What is the main idea behind it?

During the lockdown 2020 I felt that this is the perfect time to produce my first album. I didn’t want to give myself any limitations – every outcome was welcome. I tried to mix the acoustic guitar with electronic instruments and other sound experiments. “Natural Behaviour” is the result; a collection of folky guitar songs, combined with hazy synths, quirky sounds and multilayered vocals.

Your most personal and honest lyric?

‘I cannot dance’

Favourite album of the past decade?

Hard to pick just one, but for now I’d go with “Small Mercies” by “Pixx”.

Your sound has very nice vintage synth elements. Which is your go to synth (analog or digital) when you start a new project?

The voice sampler Yamaha VSS30. A cute toy-like Keyboard.

What does success mean for you going forward?

Recording and producing this first solo record and now releasing it makes me very proud and happy. During this whole process I have remained true to myself. It makes me happy if people listen to my album and tell me that they like what they hear.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Be patient and try to enjoy every step of the process.

Cats, gods or …? What is the story behind your name?

I would love to be an actual pet owner: I love cats, but I have a pretty bad allergy so unfortunately it remains to be wishful thinking.

Thank you!
