Bowerbirds – Tuck The Darkness In

We have seen the 6 minutes documentary about their daily life. The mini documentary also show us how The Clearing was made. In case you missed it, you can watch the video on my previous post about Bowerbirds. Four days ago, this fourth studio album released. In the same time, they are release their first music video from the album for public. The track titled Tuck The Darkness In, which also their first single relesed for public three months ago. I embed the track at the end of this post, in case you just want to hear the track without the video.

The idea of this music video is simple, a relationship between a young boy and fish. Start with regular fishing day in a beautiful day on the lake side. And as you already guessed, the story become noetic, along with music turns beaty. Well, it’s obviously matching Bowerbirds’ music, isn’t it? Some folk with additional violin and accordeon sounds in the background, they are blowing our mind. Enjoy!

Bowerbirds – The Clearing

The Clearing adalah album keempat dari sebuah band folk asal Raleigh, North Carolina, Bowerbirds. Folk alternatif dari Bowerbirds dihasilkan oleh tiga orang musisi, Philip Moore (vocals, guitar), Beth Powers (accordion, vocals) and Mark Paulson (violin, vocals). Ketiganya mengaku musik mereka sangat terinspirasi oleh para pengusung sunshine-pop seperti Lavender Diamond.

Video di atas adalah sebuah dokumenter sepanjang 6 menit tentang album baru mereka tersebut. Dibuat oleh Creato Destructo, sebagai bahan untu kita “mengintip” materi album mereka nanti. Berisi footage tentang kehidupan sesehari Phil dan Beth yang saling jatuh cinta di country side North Carolina, dan tentu saja wawancara-wawancara tentang bagaimana The Clearing dibuat. Albumnya sendiri akan rilis tanggal 5 bulan depan. Sebuah album yang dibuat oleh dua orang yang sedang jatuh cinta dan satu orang violis kawakan? Oh, saya sangat menunggu album ini. Selamat menikmati.
