Trans-atlantic duo Thus Owls comprise husband and wife Erika and Simon Angell. They formed in Sweden as an outlet for the songs of Erika, who's Swedish, and they split their time between Montreal and Sweden. Enchanting third album Turning Rocks (also out on vinyl) was recorded in Montreal, and features such name guests as Taylor Kirk (Timber Timbre) and Marie-Pierre Arthur. Their haunting sound is built around Erika's strong and dramatic vocals. Thus Owls recently played SXSW, NYC and in Europe, launched the album in Toronto and Montreal this week, and play Quebec City on April 11 and Laval on April 21. A group to give a hoot about.
