Baeble First Play: Emilie and Ogden Share Hope Amidst The Darkness
  • TUESDAY, JANUARY 12, 2016

My eyesight is abysmal. It started to go in the 1st grade, and it's just consistently gotten worse since then. One of my greatest fears in life is that I'm going to wake up one day and not be able to see anymore at all. And in their new music video for "Ten Thousand," Montreal folk actEmilie & Ogden subvert that existential horror with a tale of romance and warmth.

We've got the exclusive premiere of the video for "Ten Thousand," the title track off the band's debut album. The video charts a woman's romantic retreat to a cabin in the woods with her lover only to woke up one morning with blindness. But the video and the track itself are draped in a folk beauty -- with hints of First Aid Kit -- that provides a glimmer of hope against the darkness of the video's implications. And between Emilie Kahn's stirring vocals and the innocence at the heart of the video, "Ten Thousand" should put more than a pinch of hope and inspiration in your day.
