Womans Hour  return in 2015 with another beautiful black and white, minimalistic video for the song “Devotion” off their serene Secretly Canadian debut album “Conversations” out last year. You can watch the twin filled video directed by Weronika Tofilska .

Here’s Fiona Burgess with more behind the video:
‘We talked a lot about the idea of closeness, trust and dependency, and felt that using siblings was the most natural way of communicating this…as well as looking identical, the twins in our video have a loyalty to each other that is so constant throughout their lives that it’s unlike any other relationship. We were interested in how the visuals could compliment this theme, using minimal props and staging in order to make the focus on the subjects. They are almost like still life portraits, their movements are subtle so that the viewers focus is on the tinniest movements… it’s often the smallest gestures that speak volumes”

There’s a relatively simplistic formula at work on the debut long-player from Woman’s Hour, but it’s executed with sensitivity and a rich narrative that allures the listener from start to finish. “Conversations” succeeds in capturing – entirely  – a humanity that’s both poetic and grounded. It’s simply astounding that they’ve pulled it of so perfectly, without a trace of lull.

Fans of dreamy, Synth Pop and  soulful indie-pop should tune in to ‘Conversations’, the captivatingly delicate debut by Cumbria’s Woman’s Hour.They are not your average band. The first clue comes in the name of the London-based swoon-pop four-piece, taken from a beloved female-focussed news and culture show on BBC Radio 4. The second is in their graphic, striking monochrome visuals, meticulously curated in collaboration with TATE and MOMA certified fine artists Oliver Chanarin and Adam Broomberg. These play with shape and texture, much like their powerful, iridescent music. On their excellent debut album ‘Conversations’, this has the intricate construction and intimacy of The xx and the iridescent shimmer of summer-defining indie pop.
