A Duo No Longer, Bowerbirds Shows Both Its Bruises and Resilience on becalmyounglovers, Its First Album in Nine Years.
The 12 meditations on the album, named becalmyounglovers, center on wounds, healing, and transformation and feel the toll of that uncoupling—and the uncertainty of carrying on as a solo act what was once a team effort.
“It was a difficult decision,” Moore says, when asked about continuing on without Tacular. “I’d been sitting on these songs for a while. There was kind of a point in time where it didn’t feel right to release it as Bowerbirds maybe for like a couple, three years.... And so I just kind of waited on it. Eventually time heals all wounds, they say, and it kind of got to that point.”
