Interview With Chasing Owls
FEATHERY FOLK WITH A GLEEFUL GRIN
With a clear talent for soft, gleeful, magical songs and enchanting boy/girl vocal harmonies, it’s no surprise that upcoming Edinburgh quartet Chasing Owls have already supported Noah & The Whale and Athlete, as well as appearing at Belladrum, Wickerman, Greenbelt Festival and Edinburgh’s Fringe. With a stripped-back acoustic sound that resides on the quieter side of the atomic scale – but packs no less of a punch because of it – the band rely upon charming melodies and brisk drum lines to get their point across.
Chasing Owls have released two EPs to date – We Began (2011) and Quell (2012). Check out their video for Train below and swipe yourself a free copy of Lady Of Whiteness (from their first EP) here. Like manners, it’s completely free.
