I was a big fan of Montreal-based, Sweden-born husband-wife duo Thus Owls’ 2012 LP, Harbours, recorded in a village on the Seine in southern France but with a lost melancholy that suggests the trip was spent more huddled under umbrellas than stretching legs and lying in fields. Now, they’re back with its followup, Turning Rocks, out April 8th via Secret City. “As Long As We Try a Little” is its first single, and it doesn’t sound like the storm has quite passed, ending with a cloud-breaking finale and me feeling down as ever.
