Trish’s Song

November 12th, 2015

While in Villafranca del Bierzo, Spain at the end of September (playing at an amazing festival called “Evento Sarmiento”) we were fortunate enough to get into this old theatre and shoot a video for “Trish’s Song”.

We’d been hesitant to create a video for such an intensely personal piece, and long ago ruled out any sort of narrative ideas. But the ancient, echoey rooms of Europe brought the thought of an intimate performance video to life. This room in particular had such a beautiful feel to it – so rosy and ornate and Spanish and sort of wonderfully feminine. It fit the song perfectly, and despite a long day and a few technical troubles, the song sang effortlessly in the room, take after take.

We hope you enjoy it. And go tell your mother you love her. Wherever she is.

We’d also like to especially thank our incredible Spanish hosts and friends that helped make this possible: The Mayor’s Office of Villafranca Del Bierzo, Frodo Garcia-Conde, Antonio Leyva, Jose Alvarez De Toledo, Lucia Arroyo.

Thanks to all who made it out to our whirlwind eastern American tour this April. Big thanks to Communion for putting the sweet residency tour together. And huge thanks to Kevin Garrett and his boys for coming along and making each night all the better.

We’re back in the RDF (rain/drizzle/fog) of St John’s for a week here now, but only a week. Cause you can feel the summer sun out there somewhere, stirring. And off we go in search of it. More American shows next week. And shows shaping up all over through the summer. We’ll be announcing some more in the coming weeks. Visit the tour page for complete info.

We dropped by SiriusXM Canada a little bit back and recorded exclusive versions of five songs from Second Sight. You can view ‘Gold Teeth‘ and ‘What Arrows‘ on The Verge’s YouTube channel or stream the whole session here:

We are giving away a BOSS DD-3 Delay Pedal! The pedal was painted by Toronto artist Erica Balon, and was inspired by Mighty Pop’s Jud Haynes’ recent poster from our tour with Stars. In order to win the pedal, share this post on Facebook, or retweet this tweet on Twitter!

What Arrows, Second Sight US release

January 22nd, 2015

We have another video from our time in Fogo Island, NL with Mark Bennett. It’s for the song What Arrows, and was released on the USA Today website yesterday. It just may be our finest video yet. We’ll be yakking about it on the twitters no doubt.

Second Sight is officially out in the USA next Tuesday – January 27 – but you can hear it on Spotify this week!

We’re back out on the yellow lines here in earnest, at the start of a long ride west. You can look at all our tour dates here. We hope to sing for you soon in your city. If not on this run west, then further into the spring and sweet sweet summer. Until then, thanks for reading and listening and giving a damn.
