Dylan Romel (Drums), Jesse De Los Santos (Guitar), Carlos Garcia (Bass) and Joshua De Leon (Guitar) form the merseybeat combo The Blind Owls, but surprisingly from the other side of the Atlantic Ocean they emerging from Corpus Christi, Texas in the USA.
Listening to The Blind Owls find you donning a pair of winkle-pickers to join in the dampened strings which bustle around the room in joyful footstep. Not seeking to tear down the basic structures of the genre, neither are they a pale pastiche of what has become before, the quartet leave the audience feeling better for having become involved.
The twin guitars delightfully bounce one across the other, whilst a subdued bass keeps the tempo as the drum sticks add the toe-taps to which a variety of voices gives the lustre to the out-put. Having been around for a while The Blind Owls have a well-trodden live performance circuit and a loyal audience and it is to their credit they have not stepped outside their remit to chase audience, rather aiming to establish a close-knit community to which everyone is welcome to get into the groove.
A new LP is set for release on the 24th of September – which showcases them in fine fettle and the eight track album, which runs to just under twenty-five minutes – The Blind Owls Say Goodbye is well worth grabbing hold of.
I am only able to share one track from the album with you – Don’t Bother.
The Blind Owls Say Goodbye is available on bandcamp.
