The Ocelots

Wed 3 Aug 2022 @ Wrecking Ball Arts Centre

24-year-old twins Brandon and Ashley Watson are The Ocelots. Formerly based in Ireland, now in Leipzig, Germany, the brothers have crafted their songwriting and musical experience together to produce a forceful blend of rich harmonies and bare, raw acoustic folk. Their music perfectly embodies the breezy effortlessness of early Bob Dylan, and Simon & Garfunkel.
