Black Matter

Released on November 6, 2015

Thus Owls are a five-piece Montreal/Stockholm band based around husband and wife duo Erika and Simon Angell. The band originated in Sweden as an outlet for Erika’s songs and unique vocal-style. She met Simon by chance while the two were touring in Europe as part of different bands paired on the same bill. Before long, they were married and the collaboration that is Thus Owls was born. After three full-length, Cardiac Malformations (2009), Harbours (2012), Turning Rocks (2014) and a Polaris Music Prize long-list nomination, the band released in 2015 the Black Matter EP on Secret City Records.
