Mifune (pronounced Mee-foo-nay) is Scowlin Owl's debut single. It's a driving, atmospheric folk song about the relationship between Japan's most famous actor Toshiro Mifune and legendary film director Akira Kurosawa, with references to the film Seven Samurai. Mifune and Kurosawa's relationship was the foundation for some of the best samurai movies of all time.

Scowlin Owl are a London, UK based all-female folk band, low on twee but big on drama and vocal harmonies. They're influenced by storytellers from the classic (Dylan, Baez) to the contemporary (Decemberists, Midlake).
