Bio

‘Only Child’ is the lead track from Dead Owls new EP 'Small Talk'. Recorded by Dave Parkin (Jebediah, Drapht) at Blackbird Studios, the track takes a fresh approach to guitar based indie rock and channels the likes of Arcade Fire at their emotive best. A marching band rhythm section combines with repetitive vocal hooks to build over two and a half minutes, before reaching an exceptional climax that marks a new songwriting high from the Perth duo. The 'Small Talk' EP will be released nationally on iTunes via Gun Fever (Green Media) on Friday March 22nd. Booking Contact: Greg Sanders greg@gunfever.com.au

A nice crunching tune. That central guitar riff comes straight from the 90s school of alt rock. Can hear these guys playing with someone like Emperors - that'd be a show.

Digging the Arcade Fire vibe of this one, how it starts small and just builds and builds into a raucous jam.

It takes an unassuming minute to arrive but when those sky-high riffs kick in it's something seriously killer. Well structured tune with a bonus point for the uncompromisingly Australian accent.
