‘Honestly‘ is taken from Leeds based grunge-pop trio Night Owls latest EP ‘Boomerang’ which was released towards the end of last year. Despite being rather lucid throughout, ‘Honestly’ is drowned in fuzz throughout creating its stereotypically grunge sound even if it is on the more polished side of lo-fi. With alluring harmonies towards the end, the track approaches an industrial, more chaotic breakdown. Got halfway through this track on first listen and it prompted me to think “where on Earth did Cheatahs vanish too?” Their early stuff was pretty good. So for fans of them, this is definitely worth a listen.
