Revolt of the Apes’ interview with Barn Owl now at the official Austin Psych Fest 2014 website. Read the entire interview here, and look for the complete text to show up here in the very near future. Here’s an excerpt:

In what ways do you think your creative experiences outside of Barn Owl influenced your sound in ways that are surprising even to yourself? How – if at all – do you think your sense of confidence in your sound has changed since the beginning of Barn Owl’s life?

Jon: The Barn Owl sound has evolved gradually out of our consistent collaboration over the years but I feel it has defined itself more clearly recently with the use of new instrumentation. We have brought new methods into our setup but continue to focus on achieving the same musical goals. Clearly defining these goals, even subconsciously, was a big part of figuring out how to create them with new tools. We’re at the point in our project where we have an intuitive sense for what we want to achieve and in that sense we are more confident in what we want to do as a band.

Evan: We were very young when we started the band so we’ve grown up a lot. Learning your strengths and weaknesses and developing your sound, these are things that can only come with time and practice.


Revolt of the Apes is pleased, stoked and chuffed to support Austin Psych Fest 2014 through a series of interviews with many of the artists involved, answering the kind of ridiculous questions you’ve come to know and – maybe – love. Many more coming soon.
