Chasing Owls

 Edinburgh, Scotland, GBR

Chasing Owls are an indie-folk four piece from Edinburgh and have enjoyed much success since forming in mid-2010. Highlights have included opening for Athlete, playing at the NME Weekender festival and achieving airplay on BBC Radio 1, 2, 6 music and BBC Radio Scotland to name but a few.


Chasing Owls are an Edinburgh based band that are raising a name for themselves around their hometown and in the places they travel with their music. Their live performance sees the intimacy and sensitivity of their recorded material meet with the exciting live energy and enthusiasm that together serves to create a strong live act. The four-piece met in mid-2010 and since then have had a very busy number of months with highlights including playing the NME’s Weekender Festival and opening for Athlete at Durham’s Fonteyn Ballroom as well as enjoying airplay on the likes of BBC's Radio 1, 2, 6 and BBC Scotland to name but a few. Another culmination of the band’s hard work is the creation of their first record, their EP ‘We Began,' recorded with producer Dave Lynch in his Eastbourne Studio.

'World-class indie folk. The vocals are intoxicating, they really draw you in so you just need to know what he’s going to say next. It’s charming!’
