Emerging from a long pedigree of musical animals from Howlin' Wolf to Eric Burdon’s Animals to The Monkees and The Beatles and branching out to many lineages of modern rock, Desert Owls are the newest addition to this illustrious zoological family tree. Nowadays you have an overabundance of bands of the wolf variety, but Desert Owls are taking it to the skies (alongside the Eagles of Death Metal). They share in common the exuberant harmonies of their fellow (human) sand dwellers The Beach Boys, however they weren’t raised on the beach, but rather in the harsh climate of the desert where riffs are slung hot and heavy and harmonies are sung dry and gritty. The Dinosaur Jr.’s of the skies, these Desert Owls are shaking the airwaves with who?, offering infective teen spirit anthems set to stir the youth into a frenzy.
