If I told you The Swell Season performed NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series would you be interested?
If I reminded you that The Swell Season is Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, the irrepressible duo who won an Oscar for the song “Falling Slowly” and became Oscar-darlings, would that pique your interest?
If I told you the duo has a new album coming out on October 27, titled Strictly Joy, and that they played six songs off the new record for Tiny Desk Concerts would that get you to watch the above clip?
Yes, yes it should. I just want to wrap them both up in a blanket and give them a giant bear hug. Don’t ask me why, I won’t have a good answer. It just seems that’s what one should do to these two.
