Exclusive Premiere: Stream The Night Owls’ Slow-Burning Self-Titled Debut Single

By: Staff –

Emerging Montreal-based folk duo The Night Owls (Simon Arsenault and Marianne Bourgeois) have released their self-titled debut single, which you can stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.

The track is a haunting, yet captivating masterpiece that seduces you with its enticing harmonies, and vivid imagery about being one with the night.

Arsenault and Bourgeois were awake composing this track until as late as 4:00am, writing about their lives as night owls. It’s about the feeling of being alone with one another, taking walks outside and feeling as though they’re the only ones in the city awake. “We like to play music at night,” describes the couple. “The only thing that matters is each other, because in those times we feel like there’s only the two of us in the universe.” They found great comfort in this time together (but alone) during the worst parts of the pandemic.

The Night Owls is an indie/folk/rock/country band from Montreal, QC. Arsenault, a professional musician who performs as a session player for a variety of artists, studied classical music, jazz and electro acoustic at the Cegep Saint-Laurent, Université de Montreal and at UQAM. Simon was part of the progressive rock band, Innerspace, who released two albums and sold thousands of copies, especially in Europe. Bourgeois is a self-taught singer-songwriter who has started taking music more seriously over the past few years. She studied cinema and psychology, but has always written songs and poetry. For the past two years she’s been honing in on her own sound and taking singing lessons. As a couple stuck at home during the pandemic, they started writing songs, putting together music that fit with lyrics Marianne had written. Those songs multiplied and in no time they had a collection worthy of an album. Co-written by both Simon and Marianne, and produced by Simon, The Night Owls are enthusiastic about releasing their debut, self-titled album this spring.
