Peep It: Woman’s Hour, “In Stillness We Remain”

The somber, brooding, and warm music of London synthpop quartet Woman’s Hour has a subtle way of endearing listeners that quietly sneaks up on you. Led by the light, tender vocals of lead singer Fiona Burgess, the group creates an emotional atmosphere that can be simultaneously melancholy and joyous at once. This distinct characteristic is the prevalent theme in their recent enamoring debut album Conversations.

With Woman’s Hour’s latest visual release (and the first non-monochromatic one), that aforementioned tenderness is showcased and personified in the form of dance. “In Stillness We Remain” features six middle schoolers as they enact a humorous routine that combines elements of ballet, cheerleading, and even hip-hop. Conversations is out now on Secretly Canadian.  (via Stereogum)
