"As front man for Girls, the San Francisco indie-rock band that he co-founded with bassist-producer JR White, Christopher Owens was on his way to becoming the pied piper of a new bohemian youth brigade. Girls' 2009 debut, Album, and its artfully acclaimed 2011 follow-up, Father, Son, Holy Ghost, both teemed with a '70s-rock revivalism that was as affectionately sincere as it was archly postmodern: Elvis Costello-style new wave collided with heavy, droning rock and confessional singer-songwritery lamentations—occasionally within the same song. Owens also quickly revealed himself to be a singer worth obsessing over, the kind of inscrutable, unedited, melodically inclined antihero to whom youth culture will forever cleave. (Fashion, of course, has an affinity for such figures, too, which might help explain Owens's appearance in Hedi Slimane's first campaign for Saint Laurent.)"
IM NOT GOING TO GO AND JOIN ANOTHER CULT BUT IT'S TRUE THAT THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS FROM THAT EXPERIENCE THAT ARE VERY VALUABLE TO ME NOW.—-CHRIS OWENS
