Bodies of Water emerged from L.A.’s Highland Park neighborhood in the mid-00’s with Ears Will Pop & Eyes Will Blink, a winding trip through the most fervent sounds of weird America. The group is fronted by Meredith & David Metcalf. The most recent album, Spear in the City is an album of expansive and apocalyptic gospel music, pulsing baritone-led chansons á la Jacques Brel and Scott Walker, but with the rhythmic groove and vocal polyphony that’s been the group’s signature since its beginnings.
Popdose featured the album this past July and now they’ve unveiled a video for “Dark Water”. Give it a listen and see what you think.
