Review

Following his 2012 full-length The Midsummer Station, Owl City songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Adam Young issued his next small batch of new material with the four-song EP Ultraviolet. The brief offering followed the trend of electro-pop songwriting and increasingly polished songwriting set by the full-length that preceded it, with production duties handled in full by Young himself. Ultraviolet's high point was first song and subsequent single "Beautiful Times," a bounding pop track marked by soaring string arrangements from guest violinist Lindsey Stirling, known to many as a quarterfinalist on the 2010 season of television's America's Got Talent. ~ Fred Thomas
