THUS OWLS THEATER IN YOUR HEAD LIVE ON ECHOES
I have been enchanted by Thus Owls. This Canadian-Swedish band brings a theatrical feel to their songs of life on a Swedish island that is sometimes pastoral but often dark and haunted. The band is fronted by singer Erika Angell who has a dramatic style that recalls Kate Bush, Tori Amos and a touch of Siouxsie Sioux’s arch darkness. With husband Simon Angell on guitar, Thus Owls conjures dramatic musical structures that range from gentle autoharp refrains to screaming 60’s style rave-ups replete with Farfisa organ. Their latest album is Turning Rocks. You don’t want to disturb the neighbors with this one. Wear headphones and turn it up when Thus Owls play live on Echoes.
