Goodnight Owl started life in a bedroom, graduated to various recording studios and a church in Melbourne, and the result is a folktronica quartet content on blurring the lines between musical genres. Peel away the layers and you have five songs on a self-titled debut EP that have too many ambient noises and electronic beats to be strictly pop, yet also boast too many tender, heartfelt moments to be strictly the former.
The group have been likened to The Postal Service, Sigur Ros, Bon Iver and Band of Horses and they admit their music can take you in one of two directions. Like being faced with a road less travelled, on the one hand there is the promise of the embrace of the dawn while the alternative is an adventure into the dark

Following the huge success of the Big British Sound’s debut in Sydney last year, Ben Sherman have decided to take the show on the road, and will host the Big British Sound in Melbourne, as well as Sydney, for the first time this year.
What is the Ben Sherman Big British Sound exactly? Each year Ben Sherman selects a range of the best emerging artists in Australian independent music to come together and celebrate Ben Sherman’s British music heritage. Each band throws one or two covers into their set from British artists they are influenced by, or who they simply dig.
