Owl Eyes had announced a farewell party next week before kicking off her tour dates in America in March.


Brooke Addamo had a killer year in 2013. She released her debut album Nightswim, to much acclaim and a sold-out Corner Hotel show, performed at Falls Festival, and even had her turn on the front cover of Fashion Journal.
This year the dream-synth artist will be...

Tonight’s performance was the first of three shows at the Northcote Social Club for local songstress Brooke Addamo aka Owl Eyes. This would be another chance for the singer-songwriter to showcase songs in front of her hometown from her debut albumNightswim which was released earlier in the year.
The biggest unknown before the show was how well would her electro indie-pop tunes be...

Brooke Addamo comes across like an endangered species. The woman known as Owl Eyes is softly spoken, like she's found her feet but isn't ready to step on anyone's toes. Split-seconds of hesitation meander down the phone line as Brooke launches into a dialogue that doesn't quite relate to the question being posed, instead answering one I wish I'd thought to ask. She tells me that her favourite...

Owl Eyes has announced an east coast tour in support of her latest single Hurricane.


Hurricane is the forth single from Owl Eyes' debut album Nightswimming, which was released earlier this year.


Emerging electronic acts Willow Beats and The Kite String Tangle will take on support duties.

Released to commemorate the 15th anniversary of Jeff Buckley’s death, Nightswim is an excellent and icy retro-synth ballad, calling to mind College’s Drive-synonymous A Real Hero. It’s a calming ode to living in the moment, evoking nostalgia-tinged beauty in the process. Oh and I totally made up that Jeff Buckley thing as a terrible, poor taste joke and I’m sorry.

Brooke Addamo, aka Owl Eyes, has taken an interesting path in the music industry. After an early exit on Australian Idol, she has seemingly successfully rebranded herself and appeals to both indie kids and mainstream festival heads. She unsurprisingly sold out the Corner Hotel on Saturday night, and managed to deliver an engaging performance.


Owl Eyes’ show was more about feel...

The young lady behind the luscious indie-pop stylings of Owl Eyes is about to release her first full length record, and it’s a pretty incredible offering. Brooke Addamo has used synths fat and thin, percussion that sounds like it’s been squeezed through a bunch of rubber tubes or is being bashed by a gorilla-man, and all manner of little electronic details to provide the backdrop for her sweet...

Owl Eyes dives into the sticky end of Pretty In Pink fantasy with the glassy synth pop tune. Lifted from her forthcoming album, Nightswim, it is a hyper lush, hyper girly, romantic and yearning piece so thick with '80s nostalgia it is basically indistinguishable from the original sound. But good, you know. Deeply evocative.
