1. Product Details

Vinyl LP pressing. 2015 release the debut album from London based quintet Owl & Mouse fronted by Australian songwriter Hannah Botting. The songwriting vehicle for Hannah which began as a twosome with sister Jen those early outings have quickly grown into something altogether more fully formed. The extra additions - playing alongside star turns from Michael Collins Allo Darlin and Paul Rains Allo Darlin Tigercats - have given Hannahs songwriting an added musical depth complimenting the records overarching themes and ideas. Straight out of the same school of Australian songwriting as The Go-Betweens Triffids and Courtney Barnett Hannahs words follow her compatriots ability to be widescreen and personal at once infused with an added degree of delicacy and poignancy. The results manifest themselves in an album thats both infectious and joyous Misfits and its ruminations on family bittersweet the brass-laden title track and its tales of airport arguments and understatedly emotive the turmoil of deciding whether to hold on to someone you love or not hold them back detailed in Canvas Bags and Sinking Songs memories of the struggle of making friends in a new town led by Wades Stephin Merritt-esque baritone.
