“No record in recent memory has given me the chills as consistently as Harbours” – TORONTO STAR

“…eerie, evocative music to transport you to faraway places” – 4/5 MONTREAL GAZETTE

“…the record sounds less like an ideal couple’s vacation than it does the weight of being apart” – THE FADER

“It’s this ability to keep a listener intrigued for such a prolonged period of time, whether it’s a five-minute production or an entire album, which reveals the talent behind Thus:Owls” – EXCLAIM!

“Thus:Owls – unreserved recommendation…” LA PRESSE

“Each stylistic influence Thus:Owls draws from works in their favor, as Harbours succeeds in establishing a sound all their own” – NIGHTLIFE

We spent some amazing days in Utrecht last week in wonderful Kytopia land!! We were invited to record some songs with The Kytopia Orchestra in their studio and we had spent days and nigths writing arrangements for them. A string quartet, a brass quartet and a 15 piece choir!! Not every day you get the opportunity to do that. It sounded so beautiful and we had so much fun. The whole shabang was filmed so you will all be able to take part of it very soon. We just want to say THANK YOU to the Kytopia Orchestra!!

We can also announce that our album Harbours will be released in Benelux by Kytopia Records in January 2013!!
