Stream Owl John's new song 'Stupid Boy' [405 Premiere]
While the moniker Owl John may not ring a bell, it almost certainly will when I say he's the man better known as Scott Hutchison of Frightened Rabbit fame. On 4 August he'll be releasing his self-titled debut album via Atlantic Records, and today we have the premiere of a new song 'Stupid Boy' for you to listen to below.
The album was produced by his friend Andy Monaghan (also of Frightened Rabbit) and Simon Liddell of Olympic Swimmers between the Isle of Mull in Scotland and the West Coast of America. He wanted to craft the album as inspiration before the next Frightened Album record, and with the rest of the band on a break following their relentless touring schedule behind Pedestrian Verse, it was the perfect time to do so.
'Stupid Boy' is brilliantly honest, raw, and heartbreaking - much like 'Hate Music', which can be heard here. The songs were built on a schedule of music by day, whisky by night, and within two weeks the record was finished. If you pre-order Owl John the track will download instantly, and you can do so over at his website!

- 22 July – Edinburgh, Caves
- 23 July – Glasgow, Cottiers Theatre

Ego Ella May has been described by many as versatile due to her multi-talented abilities on guitar, beatmaking and even freestyling. As the premiere single for her next project, these skills certainly come across and dare say, represent the future of soul. Listen via the 405's new music section. [read more]
It's almost shocking that Big Sean has only released one full LP, given the fact that his presence in hip-hop has been basically ubiquitous in recent years - such is the nature of having a GOOD Music co-sign, and some of the most memorable, meme-ready lines in contemporary rap. [read more]
Her voice, something between rippling silk and a rich whisper, trails caressingly over glistening guitars. [read more]
