Bowerbirds playing MHOW 6/23, watch their new video

by John Dabrowski

Did you know that a distinguishing feature of bowerbirds is their incredible courtship behavior where the males construct a bower (structure of grass and bright objects) to attract mates? I believe this fact holds true to North Carolina’s Bowerbirds. Their music is a delicate contraption of marvel, of brightness that lures and entices. In their latest album, The Clearing (Dead Oceans), tunes like “Tuck The Darkness In” glimmer and shine. Download the song here.

Bowerbirds released a video for “Overcome With Light,” and its a stunning appreciation for nature in its undisturbed state. The band just embarked on a US tour and will make their way to NYC June 23rd at Music Hall of Williamsburg. They will metamorphose the space into a lush meadow of folk. Dates to their tour and newest video are available below...
