Wake Owl, Sean Flinn & the Royal We, Andy Shauf

9 pm., Saturday February 09 | $8 advance, $10 day of show.
Bunk Bar
1028 SE Water Ave.
 

[COUNTRY FOLK] Scores of indie bands are trying to emulate the success of bands like Mumford & Sons and the Lumineers these days. Vancouver’s Wake Owl, thankfully, is more imaginative than that, choosing to tip its hat to those groups instead of shamelessly copying them. Mixing Americana strains with wistful violins, echoing and occasionally ethereal guitars, complementary percussion and Colyn Cameron’s alternately scratchy and hauntingly beautiful vocal harmonies, Wake Owl’s music is decidedly its own. The songs are tinged with country and folk-rock sounds throughout, but the band mostly stays in the Americana realm, painting emotionally charged, picturesque tales of love, loss and finding your way. If you enjoy music that is more subtle than lively, this is the band for you.
