The Clearing, the third album from Bowerbirds released earlier this year, found the Raleigh-formed band fleshing out its folksy sound, with soothing melodies that flowered into lush orchestration. It resulted in their best album to date. With a new video befitting their pastoral sound, "Overcome with Light" puts the band in their natural element and does well to capture their reverence of their surroundings. The band continues their east coast leg of their extensive tour this week and be sure to check back for a show review in the next few days.
