We came across OWL JOHN on our SOUNDCLOUD feed and were instantly smitten, they are the side project of members of FRIGHTENED RABBIT. And they sound mighty fine.

The Levons are a band that are, although very much in their infancy, already perking up ears around Liverpool. Their two demos on Soundcloud, ‘Ain’t Enough Days’ and ‘Stop These Games’, hint at a nostalgic recollection of the influential days of Mersey Beat but at the same time feel new and original. Their name also references a key influence for them in the shape of Levon Helm, drummer with The Band
Through their captivating chorus hooks and sumptuous harmonies, this is a band that are certain to leave you humming their melodies hours after listening. With connections inside the band to both The Sand Band and James and Ian Skelly of the Coral, there is no wonder that a certain pedigree noticeably shines through.
