Scowlin Owl are an all-female folk band, low on twee but big on drama and vocal harmonies. They’re influenced by storytellers from the classic (Dylan, Baez) to the contemporary (Decemberists, Midlake). Any story or concept which inspires them may become a song - their set list includes tunes about the 2011 tsunami, creepy preachers, frozen cavemen, the Japanese John Wayne, the childlike love of waterslides and what Dolly Parton’s Jolene may have said in her defence. They launched their debut single, Mifune (about the Japanese actor Toshiro Mifune) in January 2013 with a view to releasing an EP in 2013.
