Transatlanticism. No, not the Death Cab for Cutie album. I am talking about the Montreal/Stockholm husband-wife duo Thus Owls.  Made up of Erika and Simon Angell, they are releasing their new album, Turning Rocks on April 8 through Secret City Records. If you can’t bare the wait, you can watch the video of “As Long as We Try a Little” on repeat. The video matches the abstract nature of the song, which is about Erika’s grandmother’s two aunts (try to keep up here!)- who were seamstresses that lived and worked together, until one of their untimely ends.

You will only have to try a little to love this song.
