"Ravens" is our second glimpse of Mount Eerie's forthcoming album A Crow Looked at Me, and it's every bit as devastating as the lead track, "Real Death." Probably even more so when you take into account its considerably longer runtime and beautifully photographed video, which contains (among other things) archival footage of Phil's wife, Geneviève, goofing around on the beach.
