Lark Vs. Owl / Press

“On this Mike Sebring-engineered and -mixed album, Matthew Payne and Dennis Jolin juggle multiple instruments, including glockenspiel, gong, keyboard, and ukulele, making each song sound so big that it's hard to believe LvO is only a duo.”

"...I had never heard of [Lark vs. Owl] before, yet by the time we were done beta testing (over about a month) I had become a HUGE fan! Their original music is very unique, catchy, and really cool! I am now a lifelong fan!"

“This Duo creates minimalist indie rock with decidedly lo-fi production values that are fuzzy and endearing”

“The self titled EP from the talented duo that make up Lark VS. Owl is one that is a definite and welcomed departure from the all that is being put out for music lovers to hear. They have implemented an unusual style and approach to making music that works perfectly for the band and more so for anyone that listens to them. They both play a variety of instruments to make the band sound complete. Even though they share the duties of vocals it is when they combine both voices on some of the tracks that their richness and quality of sound can best be heard. Lark VS. Owl has definitely lived up to their name on this EP with some songs being more lighthearted and almost humorous pop and the others that are dark haunting and brooding down tempo sounds that are a pleasure to hear. This is a band to watch and an EP to really listen to in order to completely enjoy the artistry placed on an album by this talented duo.”

““nice guitar work on this song””

““the song is superb””

““The vocals on this track, punctuated by percussion, have a real intensity, comparing the experience of love at first sight to an eclipse.””

“An excellent duo! Matt Payne on drums and vocals, Dennis Jolin on Guitar and bass and vocals. You won't believe it's just two guys making this driving, rolling, heartbreaking sound!”

“Seattle based band Lark Vs. Owl has taken on the challenge and is off to a great start by releasing a 6-track EP in September 2008. Already, their profile has received over 8000 views, and listeners have played their songs over 1000 times.Their MySpace categorizes the group as rock and minimalist.”
