Dravus House is proof that a clear and poignant vocal, a few chord changes, and an added electric guitar for flavor is all it takes to make a statement. The extra charm of this video is the live performance aspect, and the simple beauty of the subject matter.
The vibrato in those high notes gives hints of Gillian Welch, and the steady hand of the electric guitar performance could easily be David Rawlings. The range and dynamism of the duet performance is exceptional, and the video is full of pastels, sunlight, and other warm visuals.
Dravus House is an alt-folk duo consisting of Elena Loper and Cooper Stoulil.
