For the Thoughts You Never Had was eagleowl's debut EP, released through Fife Kills: records in August 2008. It was originally released on CD, in a strictly limited edition sleeve - each one screen printed, hand folded and individually numbered by hand. All physical copies have now sold out.
Praise for 'For the Thoughts You Never Had':
"Manages to perfectly capture what has made them such an appealing live prospect. Gentle harmonies and groaning strings combine to create a set of atmospheric slow burners in which every note and nuance sounds completely deliberate and considered."
***** - Brian Sherry, Is This Music?
"a wonderfully atmospheric piece of slowcore post-folk, reminiscent at times of Low, with a dash of Scottish sea shanty thrown in here, a soupcon of Adem’s organic melancholy there, all of it positively oozing home-grown, home-cooked goodness."
**** - Doug Johnstone, the List (single of the fortnight)
Their slow-burning, fragile folk refuses to betray youthful energy, instead moving with care to preserve the peace behind each song. Most impressively, eagleowl know exactly how to construct a collection of songs that flows from first second to last.
**** - Ally Brown, the Skinny
"gorgeously quavering folk harmonies"
