She Keeps Bees – “Owl” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

She Keeps Bees’ Eight Houses single “Owl” smartly matches Radiohead-like guitar arpeggios with surprise flashes of brass, all topped off by Jessica Larrabee’s commanding vocal performance. (It’s also one of the tracks that has Sharon Van Etten cooing in the background.) For the video, Lizzy Brooks sends actress Laura Cohen on a surreal feral crawl through the great outdoors and a smoky formal dinner party. Cohen’s performance will stick with you, as will the song itself. Watch.
