It's Mo(u)rning Music

January 5, 2009

That was my sister’s first reaction to “Darken Me” from Electric Owls’ EP Magic Show. Whether she meant music well-suited to a funeral or to the a.m., I believe she was right. Light beats are juxtaposed with dark lyrics in songs like “Cannibal Superstar.” “Magic Show” suggests bagpipes hovering behind tinkling melodies and “Darken Me” is distinctly Americana, but all of it is electronic. The EP, released in early November, is the work of Andy Herod, on break from his band The Comas. A promising new band, Electric Owls’ album is set to release in the first weeks of April. Four months and counting.
