Bowerbirds Do Three In A Park In Vienna

Raleigh, North Carolina’s lovebirds Bowerbirds have given us one of the year’s best songs in “Northern Lights.” Download it. That track’s sadly absent from this string of live clips, although there’s still plenty of gentle balladry herein to spend some time with. Here the band plays and sings while walking and frolicking in Austria for a session filmed by They Shoot Music. Yes, it sounds like a Take Away Show, and yes Bowerbirds have already done one of those. But that was drawn from the old, and these from the new — the band’s worthy, earthy love-folk LP Upper Air.


“Beneath Your Tree”

“Teeth”
