Night Owls

Self Titled

Night Owls are a relatively new rock band from Syracuse New York. They have ex-members of some notable bands from hardcore recent past, but they only one I'd like to mention is Spark Lights the Friction who put out a great album on Trustkill many moons ago. Anyhow, Night Owls play rocking post hardcore that reminds of Quicksand boxing it out with Rocket From the Crypt at a Superchunk show. There are lots of hooky guitars, shouted drunk vocals, and plenty of noise piled on top. I like this EP a great deal but I could have done without the live set tacked on the end. Oh well, I keeping this one.

Four sixes, four fists, two rappers and some punchy production that’s equally space age and heavy hitting. It’s my own interpretation here, but the group name is more a reference ...
