Northern Lights by Bowerbirds

Who: Bowerbirds from Raleigh, NC.

What: The first glimpse into Bowerbirds sophomore album (Upper Air on Dead Oceans July 7th). I’m someone who should spend more time picking up the lyrics in songs. Rarely do the words come first, but these grabbed me instantly. ‘All I want is your eyes, in the morning as we wake, for a short while.’ The album features songs as journal entries, each describing a certain time or place. Arrangements are sparse and complementary to the anchor of Moore’s words and melody. Look for them touring in July with Megafaun.

Song: Northern Lights.
