Goodnight Owl

January 18, 2010

goodnight owl 
So here’s some  more pop folk goodness that has some vague association with Two Bright Lakes. This time is different though. Goodnight Owl are more akin to the Postal Service than Seagull or Otouto. Melding acoustic guitars with subdued electronic goodness to create their own unique brand of Australiana. Although their debut EP was produced by Melbourne’s go to guy, Two Bright Lake’s Nick Huggins.

There’s a vulnerability to Eddie Alexander’s song writing that’s rare in Australian music. A quiver in his voice as if he barely manages to mutter his melancholy lyrics at this but at times confident enough to conquer choruses with great hooks. Beats provided by partner in crime Joe Walker, blend perfectly with the finger picked guitar folk songs. “Maps and Compasses” is a stunning pop song that rides a complex beat while sticking some nice falsetto parts in the chorus. These guys. These guys should be on your radio already.
