Since May, Paste has traveled the U.S., recording and producing one-of-a-kind live performances of some of our favorite up-and-coming artists at Aloft Hotels around the country. The ongoing 10-date series has featured acts like Dar Williams, Langhorne Slim and Young Man.
On June 9, Strand of Oaks played an intimate show at the Aloft Philadelphia Airport. The Pennsylvanian group, featuring songwriter Timothy Showalter, recently unveiled their latest record, Dark Shores, which is an “elegant and melodious dystopian album that navigates gracefully away from clunky doom or preachy drivel,” according to Paste’s recent review. Later this summer and fall, Showalter plans to tour alongside the Tallest Man on Earth and Bowerbirds for a string of opening dates. Watch Strand of Oaks perform “Maureen’s”—one of the standout tracks off of Dark Shores—live at Aloft by clicking on the link below.
Remember to check back here every Tuesday as we roll out videos from the concert series.
