There Is No Mountain / Press

““Owl Hymn,” the slow-burning first glance at the duo’s new direction, showcases the husband and wife team’s continued knack for churning out folky pop tunes, albeit with a twist. The four-plus-minute cut bashes barebones percussion and frenzied acoustic guitar evoking the African influence seen in major indie acts like Vampire Weekend and the Dirty Projectors. The subtle handclaps and Harmon’s bouncing guitar complement Giaritta’s soft vocals, giving the song a serene vibe despite the moments of quick, brash handwork. Although the song is definitely a refreshing taking on traditional Americana—embedded with more than a little modern pop sensibility—the tune doesn’t wander far from remnants of music’s past. (I’m thinking a touch ofGraceland perhaps?)”

“Full of stop-and-go buoyancy, ["Owl Hymn"] is as lively as ever but engagingly different with its malleable rhythms—it’s a new sound from recognizable voices.”
