BEATOWLS: “Read over it, play over it, revise, tweak. Steal?” All I See Is Trouble…

SHADOWS dance with dark secrets as Liverpool’s cult synth-noir trio, BEATOWLS take cold hand in cold hand to release their shattered-heart single, ‘All I See Is Trouble.’

Working where stillness and tension meets kinetic drama, vocalists Darcie Chazen and Tom Roberts, forming Beatowls with musician Carl Cook, draw ears, eyes, and curious minds to the latest, filmic single from their debut album, ‘MARMA.’

Released in November on esteemed Paris/Liverpool-based indie, Violette Records, MARMA was painstaking constructed above the glistening asphalt streets and barred-window warehouse buildings beside the River Mersey.

Roberts explains: “It starts with one word, one line, one phrase at a time. No considerations as to where it will go or who will hear it. No timeframe. Read over it, play over it, revise, tweak. Steal? Remove and redo. Make it personal, make it universal. Get better. Happy accidents. Small victories. The idea is everything. Keep going. The idea reveals itself more. Revise, tweak and refine. Steal a bit more. Record again. Make connections, play with its fire. Make it the best you can. Rewrite and record again.”

Beatowls’ rare live expeditions will continue into 2024, with two more dates confirmed. The three-piece will appearing at Leaf, Liverpool for the Violette Revue (December 17th) and London’s Soho Theatre (February 28th).
