Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

Turn Up The Volume featured this shattering three-headed engine out of Leeds before. NIGHT OWLS consist of life-long friends William Pollard (bass, vocals) and Liam Waddell (guitar) who’ve been joined along the way by Dominic Reed (drums). Their brand new slam BETTER WITH AGE is a short, razor-sharp electro uppercut pushed by manic drums and inflamed with a jigsaw-like guitar sounding like a freakish siren. A trenchant ripper that tears the evil attraction of social media apart. Apply the cliché this time for brain-splitting purpose: PLAY IT DAMN LOUD!…
