On Take the High Road, Owls & Lions are able to keep things slow and emotionally intense. The vocals and drums combine in a fashion that calls back to Pink Floyd and forward to the more introspective Maroon 5 fare. A booming, epic sound builds up at the 2-minute mark, representing the separation between the two halves of this cut. We’re in love with the drums on the track, which add a bit of narrative component to the already heady style that the band broaches. Make sure to ride out to the end of this single, as the vocal-heavy conclusion will tattoo itself deep into one’s mind and body.
We checked out Owls & Lions’s God Bless You & Protect You in September.
