Thus Owls - "As Long as We Try a Little" (video) (Premiere)

by PopMatters Staff

14 February 2014

On the video for "As Long as We Try a Little", Thus Owls finds the drama in small gestures.
 

On “As Long as We Try a Little”, Montreal-Stockholm husband-wife duo Thus Owls finds the drama in small gestures, both musically and thematically. Trained mostly on minimal piano lines and Erika Angell’s steadily climbing vocals, there’s a slowly gathering intensity that crescendos patiently, yet still to startling effect. Premiering here, the video for “As Long as We Try a Little”, directed by Joe Yarmush, matches the music’s mood, as it follows two brothers puzzling over a mysterious letter that, fittingly, says, “It’s time,” in Swedish.

  
Thus Owls’ new album Turning Rocks is slated for release on 8 April on Secret City.
