Beatowls Upcoming LP, 'MARMA', Is Now Available For Vinyl Pre-Order Including A Limited Edition Print Of The Album
Beatowls elaborate ambient needlework punctures the taut surface tension separating introspection & eccentricity, pain & joy, and light & shade, as BEATOWLS' rain-refracted album, MARMA is announced, alongside the news that they will be releasing Vinyl prints of their album.
Performance artist & vocalist, Darcie Chazen and musicians, Carl Cook and Tom Roberts thread nature and beauty through concrete and decay across ten tracks.
From a warehouse by the river, electronic three-piece, BEATOWLS’ exquisite, meticulously-built and finely fractured sounds guide an introspective and thought-provoking sonic journey through MARMA, the Liverpool collective’s captivating debut album. A glacier flow of scratched percussion, dewdrop melodies and beautified dread, caught between dreams and reality and industry and nature, the album is released by Violette Records on Friday the 17th of November 2023.
'Our album offers a cinematic journey through personal and universal experiences, balancing longing and pain and addressing the transience of time.' - Tom Roberts of Beatowls.
The band constructs a kitchen-sink psychodrama around vocalists, Darcie Chazen and Tom Roberts’ evocative, studied reading of romantic realism and resignation. Building such tense and tender two-handers between them, Beatowls hall of mirrors reflects the DIY approach of Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland, warps The XX’s millennial longing onto Portishead’s sense of the sinister and distorts Nancy & Lee’s rippy idealism with the skewed romanticism and foreboding of Badalamenti/Lynch, Broadcast and Warp Records.
Tom Roberts, talking about the album, said: 'Our album offers a cinematic journey through personal and universal experiences, balancing longing and pain and addressing the transience of time. It delves into the interplay of light and dark and the dichotomy of nature and the city.'
