Night Owls is presented as “a celebration of moving comfortably into adulthood and not sacrificing your rebellious attitude.” For the new songs, the Dollyrots once again enlisted longtime collaborator John Fields (Jimmy Eat World, All Time Low, Meet Me At the Altar) who is responsible for the bulk of production credit.
Songs from Night Owls have already been deemed “The Coolest Song In The World” on Sirius XM’s Underground Garage. The Dollyrots have become a long-time staple on the station and their steady output caught the attention of Wicked Cool founder Stevie Van Zandt long ago.
The Dollyrots are Kelly Ogden (bass and vocals), Luis Cabezas (guitar and vocals), and Simon Hancock as their current touring drummer.
Luis Cabezas says:
At the core of this, we are a married couple with two kids and a small business that we need to keep afloat. That business just happens to be artistic, which can be a reach. So, these days, we try to find those middle-of-the-night moments where we can create and tap into that indescribable thing that helps us make music.
Kelly Ogden adds:
Making this album took the longest of any yet. We struggled to find creative time during the pandemic, with two kids at home for a full school year. And in the end, I couldn’t be prouder of the end result.
