[PREMIERE] The Blind Owls – “Mystery Man”

The Blind Owls are a musical DeLorean by way of Corpus Christi, Texas. Pure rock ‘n’ roll and raw talent takes you back to a 1960s day dream of surf-rock, garage-pop suit…and ties in this quartet’s case. Dylan Romel (drums), Jesse De Los Santos (guitar),  Carlos Garcia (bass), and Joshua De Leon (guitar) have released the first single off their upcoming debut album, All Day and Night, and you’re going to want to listen to it all day and night.

With 14 tracks recorded in a marathon 4 days with Dylan Ely at The Loop Studios in their home town, All Day and Night follows last year’s debut EP, The Blind Owls Say GoodbyeFresh off the SXSW craze and consistently constant Austin shows, these twangy Texans are heavy with timeless tunes and infectious individuality.

Jangly guitars, sure-fire vocals, and a Scooby-Doo reference makes this track impossible to ignore.

“I know what you want
I know what you need
oh baby, it ain’t me” 

It’s no mystery that The Blind Owls have a sound that isn’t just big in Texas, so pony up for their debut album to be released in June.

Here’s what Jesse had to say about their sweet single:

Mystery Man is a song that uses the bouncy sound of the drums, and springy organ sound combined with the moving bass line and driving chords to give the song a sense of urgency and fun rock ‘n’ roll.  At the time of writing the songs lyrics, I was deeply invested in comic books and the characters uses of secret identities which inspired me to write a fun song based on a man of mystery that allows the listener to use their imagination and interpret the character of the song in their own way.
