Mountain Man in SF

Mountain Man "Mouthwings" [part 1 of 3] from Yours Truly on Vimeo.

The ladies of Mountain Man sing a hand-in-hand a cappella performance of "Mouthwings", in a Hawk Hill tunnel of San Francisco. The acoustics of the tunnel provide for an open-sound with a slight echo and increased dynamics, which make the harmonies sound especially beautiful.
"Honeybee" is shot once again in Hawk Hill, but takes us to a expansive view of the Golden Gate Bridge/San Franciso bay area. Amelia, Alex, and Molly's pretty vocals seem like a perfect match to the gorgeous scenery.
In the last performance, "Babylon (Psalms 137)", the girls sing the biblical psalm in a musical round.

"Mouthwings" and "Honeybee" can be found on their S/T album.
