Night Owls release their new EP ‘Informaldehyde’ tomorrow, 10th June through Till Deaf Do Us Party – but you don’t have to wait until then to hear it. Listen below, first on Upset.
“The tracks are mainly about desperation, rejection and the gradual dislike of someone, with a brighter, tongue in cheek side coming out in the instrumentation,” explains frontman Will Pollard.
“We were really inspired by the whole idea of a relationships gone sour, as both of us had experienced that around the time of writing, and found it a little bit of an outlet at the time. It’s not always going to be about that though.
“I’ve written this one song and we haven’t even recorded it yet. We’ve just done a demo for it on GarageBand. Basically, the song’s called ‘Boomerang’ and the chorus is: ‘You are my Boomerang/But you won’t come back to me.’
“Everyone is going to think it’s about a girl, but actually it’s literally about a boomerang.”
The Leeds duo will play a couple of launch parties in support of the release, performing at the Brudenell in Leeds tonight (9th June), and Birthdays in London tomorrow (10th June).
