The Ready Set
The Secret Handshake
Show Me The Skyline
There are a bunch of good bands that are close to Owl City!
On My-Space there is a band called "Swimming with Dolphins" that is super totally AMAZING... and there is also The Secret Handshake and Port Blue :]
^All the above TBH are only compared because they are electro. If you truly want to find similarities then you will have to look into Indie bands. "I Hate This Place" are an electro band however, who NO one knows for some reason.. check them out seriously, they have amazing similarities, something all of those examples up there Don't have
Port Blue is a project before Owl City where Adam Young creates soothing instrumentals.
Swimming With Dolphins is mainly by a guy called Austin Tofte but Adam Young helps to produce his material.
hello you guys are missing something here, WHAT ABOUT "HEYHIHELLO!" come on they sound very similar, oh and also "The Postal Service" although they sound great they dont have the same happy feeling as Owl City, but there still good especially the song "such great heights".
