Free Moral Agents' Ikey Owens Has Control Issues
It's a chill set that's shoegazey, trip-hop and psychedelic all at once, and will bring you back to the days when you actually liked Massive Attack and Morcheeba. Free Moral Agents headlines this summer's final Posse on Broadway show; we caught up with Owens to talk about his forthcoming album.
Ikey Owens: "Control This" is a term I stole from the movie Rockers. When horsemouth is looking to borrow money so he can buy a motorcycle, Richard "Dirty Harry" Hall slaps a wad of cash in his hands and tells him to "control this."
How did you write the songs in the album? Did any of the other bands you collaborate in influence the creative process?
These songs were the result of a lot of summertime jams and just going in the studio and laying ideas down until we felt good about what we were hearing back. We had five or six songs already written. We intended to just record those, but once we got in the compound the ideas just started coming.
We recorded Control This almost four years ago so it's kind of hard to remember what i was listening to back then.
Free Moral Agents will be at Posse on Broadway this Sat., at the 2nd St. Promenade (between Broadway/Sycamore) from 7 to 10 p.m. It's free, and all ages.
