Having followed them since they started out as Goodnight Owl with their folk-electronica, these guys have changed so much over the past couple of years. First off, expanding out to a six piece has obviously changed their sound somewhat. There’s also this broader more encompassing feeling. As Goodnight Owl, not only were Eddie’s vocals kind of delicate sounding, but the whole band was. Now there’s this really strong overall sound that compliments Eddie’s quivering, but still strong vocals.
New single, ‘Making This Hard’ is so good. I remember this being a stand out on Saturday night, and it still nails it on record. There’s times where it feels as though it’s getting slightly out of hand, but then it’s all pulled back together with the chorus. Such a well written track.
