Track Of The Day: Bowerbirds - "Tuck The Darkness In"

Leave a Comment

North Carolina's Bowerbirds have not had a misstep over their two LP career.  The folk group looks to go a perfect three for three with their newest release The Clearing out March 6th on Dead Oceans.  If their new single, "Tuck The Darkness In" is any indication, they're well on their way.  The most impressive quality of the Bowerbirds has to be the ease in which they reach moving, sometimes tender, sometimes explosive tracks.  On "Tuck The Darkness In", the band slowly stirs emotion until a climax gives way to another walking over a hill to find a mountain still left to be climbed.  The track gently exits with a woman beautifully crooning alongside matching strings that shake to a finish.  There are a lot of bands that have one great album inside them, it appears the Bowerbirds have a whole career packed away and waiting to be shared for many years to come.
