It is nearly five years since we have heard from Howling Owls, still one of our favourite ever discoveries in the ten years of MM. A hugely underrated band, we thought Florida’s finest had slipped back into the everglades…
So it was quite a surprise, and an unexpected pleasure to get a short e-mail announcing a new single with the typically excellent title Same Circus, Different Clowns.
Lyrically brilliant, for those unfamiliar with the band, they deal in a wonderfully twisted blend of indie rock and Americana – one that hints at sinister undertones and hidden agendas behind a thinly cloaked veneer of respectability.
Listen below and check out our previous posts here – you won’t be disappointed.
Welcome back Howling Owls!
