Timber Timbre - "Woman" Video (PopMatters Premiere)

Canada's Timber Timbre have a new album in the wings and their new video is something of a 1920s-style, silent movie homage with flickering credits and camera movements and techniques reminiscent of early film.

Canada's Timber Timbre have been peddling their unique blend of noirish, cinematic roots music since 2005 and the band's 2009 self-titled album was honored by being long listed for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize. This April the trio of Taylor Kirk, Mika Posen and Simon Trottier are offering up their fourth album, Creep On Creepin’ On, which continues to blend their influences from a wide variety of sounds. Kirk says, "The idea is to make music we love and therefore embrace the risk of sounding like all the music we’ve ever loved, all at once." "Woman" is the record's first single and the video is something of a 1920s-style, silent movie homage with flickering credits and camera movements and techniques reminiscent of early film. It's an intriguing approach for a haunting song, the historic aesthetic making the song seem ever more poignant. The band will be touring the upcoming release and you can find the dates after the jump.
