Leaf Rapids "Vulture Song" (live video)
Published Mar 27, 2015Keri and Devin Latimer of Juno-winning group Nathan have switched focus to their new project Leaf Rapids, and Exclaim! has got your first look at the Winnipeg-based husband-and-wife duo's new live video for "Vulture Song."
The band cite "the wildly isolated nature of Manitoba" as a major musical influence, while the lyrics explore "the inner workings of people left too long inside their cabins in the dead of winter" just before the promise of spring.
It's a sentiment heard in the reserved sweetness of "Vulture Song." The accompanying video shows the pair performing a stripped-down rendition of the track, with Keri's angelic vocals and acoustic strumming perfectly complementing Devin's four-string finesse. It was filmed by Mike Latschislaw at a home in Winnipeg.
The band will be releasing their debut record Lucky Stars on April 14 via Black Hen. You can see their upcoming Western Canada tour dates listed below, and scroll past those for your first look at the video for "Vulture Song."
