I just recently discovered the sweet pop music of Adam Young and his band "Owl City". I had downloaded the new song "Strawberry Avalanche" and soon discovered the even better track "Hot Air Balloon". Adam's sound is somewhat reminiscent of The Postal Service, but the music and arrangements are much more "Pop music". I could see Owl City opening for Imogen Heap on tour, I think they would go well together and I'm guessing her fans would enjoy his music.

Owl City will be releasing their new album "Ocean Eyes" (order here) on iTunes on July 14th and in stores on July 28th. The band has a large North American tour (dates on their MySpace site) in September/October, very tempted to make a trip to see them live.
UPDATE: I just found out that Owl City is touring with Kate Havnevik and Unicorn Kid, should be worth seeing.

You can listen to "Hot Air Balloon" in the YouTube video below.
