She Keeps Bees – Owl video

Can DC claim She Keeps Bees as our own? Singer Jessica Larrabee hails from Wheaton MD and met partner Andy LaPlant working as a bartender in Brooklyn. Their sultry blues sound is often compared to The White Stripes, Cat Power and Sharon Van Etten, who contributed vocals on the duo’s latest album Eight Houses for the Future Gods label. Yesterday Stereogum premiered their newest video for “Owls”, a moody and mysterious track with a groovy bari sax hook and powerful vocals. Video director Lizzy Brooks puts actress Laura Cohen on a surreal trip through the woods and a dinner party, heavily referencing a silent experimental film from 1944 called At Land which featured the composer John Cage.
Also: She Keeps Bees, what a great band name.
