„Part female, part animal, She Owl’s voice is in tune with the creatures of forest: light, delicate while hunting out fearful preys in the night shade yet intense and fierce as a bite into the ears.
The music is wild and evocative, cut to the bones, a blend of darkness, tenderness and despair ignited by psychedelic and neoclassical flames.
The band’s performance is intended to be a tribal experience to share together with the audience, a musical, theatrical and heartfelt offer that is open to the extraordinary.
Multi-instrumentalist storyteller Jolanda Moletta’s latest project, She Owl recorded their critically acclaimed full-length debut in San Francisco with the participation of Dave Mihaly (Jolie Holland, Ara Anderson) on drums, Mark Nelsen (Electric Shepherd), Atiba Starr (Blue Sky Black Death) and other local musicians as well.
The record has been released on October 7th, 2013 by Broken Toys, PPZK (Peter Piek) in Europe and DIT Records (Amanda Rogers) in the US.
She Owl plays live as a duo (Demian Endian on guitar, percussions, vocals), or as a full band. Their live performances around the US and Europe have been compared to the ones of Bat for Lashes, Faun Fables, My Brightest Diamond, Siouxsie, PJ Harvey.
Fiercely independent, She Owl’s music is nowadays part of the endangered species and if you want to preserve it you must seek after it in the core of the human jungle: delicate as the wind in the trees, unfamiliar as an ancient fairytale, liberating like drums around the fire and frightening as a bird of prey. „
