New Video: Owl John – Red Hand

Owl_John_08_LO_RES

This week, today in fact, Scott Hutchison of Frightened Rabbit releases his new solo effort,
under the pseudonym of Owl John

As a step away from Frightened Rabbit, Hutchison, who admits almost leaving the Scottish indie-rock outfit last year, has created a somewhat chunkier sound, laced with apprehension and anxiety. Some may be surprised that his solo work is, in some ways, not too far off the Frightened Rabbit scale, perhaps expecting Hutchison to take his acoustic in hand and deliver a quieter record. But instead he has added more to the sound, whilst (slightly) stripping back and simplifying his lyrics – predominantly written during his time in LA

A full review of Owl John’s debut record is on its way shortly,
but for now, have a watch of his new video, for the album track Red Hand…

Tonight he plays Manchester’s Soup Kitchen,
before heading to Oslo in Hackney tomorrow evening
