Thus Owls' Turning Rocks is a study in contrasts, bringing together organic and high-concept elements intricately.

Turning Rocks, the upcoming full-length by Montreal-Stockholm outfit Thus Owls, is a study in contrasts. The husband-wife team of Simon and Erika Angell brings together organic and high-concept elements in a way that coheres intricately on Turning Rocks, striking a heady balance between warm instrumentation and a stylish veneer. Thematically, Turning Rocks conveys a sense of nostalgia and patiently dramatic moods, its songs based on stories told to Erika Angell by her grandmother about the small Swedish village where they lived.

  
Premiering on PopMatters, Thus OwlsTurning Rocks comes out 8 April on Secret City.
