Freak Owls

About Freak Owls

Broklyn, NY

Freak Owls was created from the amalgamation of ideas, restlessness, and frustrations of Josh Ricchio.  After spending the past 12 years playing and touring in a wide variety of collaborative rock bands (most recently, "Pela", "Ladycop", "The Symphony Case"), the desire to lock himself in a room and write what he calls, "catchiness incarnate" became too great.
     Each song, indeed catchier than the last, is textured with over-layering vocal choruses, sparkling acoustics, and Gnarls Barkley-like danceable beats.  All at once pulling influences from The Beach Boys, Iron & Wine, Bon Iver, Local Natives and Death Cab For Cutie, "Taxidermy's" songs make you want to curl up to them and sing along at the same time.  A very personal and uplifting half hour of smiles and moist eyes, Freak Owls wants to warm the heart and chill the spine. 
 "Taxidermy" was recorded by Eric Sanderson (Pela), and features Kolby Wade, Cody Geil, and Kerry Beach on a variety of sounds, voices and instruments.  It was released in March, 2010 on Sing Engine Records.
