Montreal’s dark pearl Thus Owls, aka Swedish-Canadian couple Erika & Simon Angell, are releasing their fourth full-length album "The Mountain That We Live Upon" on September 28th.
Nine tracks, composed for four guitars, drums and voice, that questions creation from an artistic as well as a biological point of view. What does motherhood, parenthood and artistry mean and what happens in the wake of our choices? From a jazz-oriented, avant-garde rock with chanted poetry, one version and one reality takes shape. The unmistakable sound of Erika and Simon Angell carries and brings forward this larger version of Thus Owls into a dynamic, open and free sound where love stands undoubted.
For their new album Thus Owls has collaborated with a seven-piece large band. The core trio of Erika, Simon and drummer Samuel Joly (Marie-Pierre Arthur, Fred Fortin), is surrounded by three additional guitar players; Laurel Sprengelmeyer (Little Scream), Nicolas Basque (Plants and Animals), Michael Feuerstack (The Luyas) and bass player Marc-André Landry (Matt Holubowski). The record also features Jason Sharp on bass saxophone and Emil Strandberg from Sweden on trumpet. The full band was recorded live off the floor, at Hotel2Tango in Montreal, to capture the passion that exists in their powerful and dynamic live performances. The new album will be the first release on Erika and Simon’s new independent label and artistic home; For The Living And The Dead.
