Owl John is the moniker under which Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchinson has realised his debut solo album.
It’s far enough removed from his group’s work to merit a solo foray, though not extricated so much that it will alienate fans of the cult Scottish band.
Frightened Rabbit didn’t exactly follow a template, still Owl John manages to meander further off the beaten track. It’s an album that requires persistence, but the rewards are plentiful. GC
