Bowerbirds: In Our Talons

Pitchfork posted this cool little video for my favorite Bowerbirds song, “In Our Talons”. I love the praying mantises who work out their differences while a burning forest rages behind them. The scene seems both somber and hopeful placed next to lyrics like, It takes a lot of nerve to destroy this wondrous earth /We’re only human; this at least we’ve learned.
