Maybe it’s those sultry guitars that are welcoming us in. Maybe it’s that smooth, playful bassline. Whatever it is, Wake Owl has us fully entranced in their retro inspired sound, bringing back memories of yesteryear with their classic musical stylings.
No, we can’t say we were even alive for what most would call Yesteryear, however, we are pretty well versed in musical composition throughout the years. “Candy,” displays qualities that will warm your mother’s heart over, while still maintaining a current relevance. This playful pop tune, riddled with love drenched lyrics, effortlessly tells a story to the listener, bringing them in with every verse.
Coming up on their debut LP, The Private World of Paradise, the aptly named “Candy” is quite a treat. Recorded at National Freedowm studios under producer Richard Swift (The Shins, Foxygen), the album is due out March 4th, 2014 by way of Vagrant Records. Make sure you put a notification in your phone, as this is one you won’t want to miss. Until then, you can curb your sweet tooth by picking up “Candy” on iTunes.
