From the Album: Almost Heard The Ocean by These Peaches
On the turntable today and sounding wonderful the new album from Owl & Mouse, the albums out now on Fika Recordings and the band have recorded a rather nice video for the title track Departures for your enjoyment which features the UK’s only water mobile record shop The Record Deck.
Owl & Mouse are led by Australian songwriter Hannah Botting, sister of Allo Darlin’ bassist Bill Botting. The boldly open hearted yet delicate songs come straight out of the same school of Australian songwriting as The Go-Betweens, Triffids and Courtney Barnett, with lyrics that draw on the familiar to talk about the universal difficulties of fond farewells, baggage carousels, and missed connections
Owl & Mouse began life as a sister act, with Hannah and Jen Botting, before expanding after recording their last EP, to include Tom Wade (We Aeronauts) and the prolific pairing of Emma Winston and Dan Mayfield (Enderby’s Room, Darren Hayman’s Long Parliament.
