The Owls and their lovely folkish pop

Knowing their musical heritage The Owls creates a lovely and subtle modern folkish pop that looks back on the 1960's pop-rock scene. A lot of other bands do the same, but with less luck in getting beyond the pathetic curse of plagiarism. Having played it over and over for quite some time it have revealed the ability to keep the boredom at a distance. A personal favorite is the tribute to Peppermint Patty "Peppermint Patty". But I really like the general impression of their lastest record "Daugthers and Suns" with all it's lovely bone-dry attitude and comments on snaps of everyday life.
