Stereospectacular share a wonderful new video of Bowerbirds performing “Stitch The Hem” live at Braund Sound Studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. It’s off their recently release album, The Clearing. Beth and Phil also sat down to talk with NBC’s Nonstop Sound, sharing the adorable story of when they first met. Watch both videos above.
Young love can be a powerful force. Young love, when faced with saying goodbye, can be even more powerful. Directed by Jacob Feiring, the video for “Sweet Moment” wonderfully captures these emotions. The story of two young lovers, running away from their lives, set to the comforting tunes of the Bowerbirds makes for a video that causes nostalgia to set in and the memories of young love to come floating back. Watch above.
Be sure to catch Bowerbirds on tour this summer! See the full list of tour dates HERE.
