Autumn OwlsPosted: 15.11.2009
With influences such as Sparklehorse and Radiohead I knew there was a huge likelihood that I’d enjoy listening to the Dublin based band, Autumn Owls and I wasnt wrong. Their second Ep, “On The Trail Of The Disappearing” was released in December 12th 2008 and even though it is almost a year old, it is still as relevant and absorbing as ever. Autumn Owls has had a great reception, with golden reviews from the Irish Times, State.ie and Amplifier Magazine just to name a few. They were chosen to represent Irish Music in the New York Tisch School of Arts in 2007 for the Music Video Project.This led to TV appearances on shows such as Dave Fanning’s “The Last Broadcast”. The five song long EP is 20 minutes of moody, atmospheric rock. Listening to it, it is hard to believe the band is homegrown, their sound is quite unlike the usual Irish rock band. Autumn Owls are currently working on their debut album. For now though, I advise you to download “The Trail Of The Disappearing” from iTunes today.
