Bowerbirds: “Tuck the Darkness In” Video

Beach House may have taken the cake for best new track of the day (week? month?), but today also saw the release of another duo’s LP we’ve been anticipating since a pair of teaser tracks — “Tuck the Darkness In” and “In the Yard” — hit the web. To celebrate their third record, The Clearing, Bowerbirds teamed with director Carlos Lopez Estrada and a promising young actor named Garren Stitt for an official video for the former beautifully arranged tune, in which an imaginative kid seeks to return fish to their natural habitat. The clip’s muted color palette, Stitt’s evocative performance, and the simple, intriguing tale all serve the tone of this single quite well here for one of the more memorable narrative videos to arrive of late.
