ABOUT BLACK OWLS

One part Mennonite Glam Rock, one part Anthemic Punk Blues–Black Owls revise, rather than revisit the classic rock genre–deftly building their original material into something strikingly original yet maddeningly familiar. The soundtrack for an Amish strip club, covered in homemade glitter and black light posters of whaling ships, medieval maidens and sacrificial bonfires. Wearing influences on their rolled sleeves (one can hear the Stones, the Who, Bowie, T. Rex, Wire, Magazine, Clash, Iggy and Mott the Hoople whispering in their collective headphones) Black Owls produce a new script of such sonic fables for an eager audience yearning for rock's reawakening.
