Durham, NC band Bombadil are back with a new album called All That The Rain Promises. If you had the honor of hearing the band’s previous LP, Tarpits And Canyonlands, you’ll have an idea of what to expect. Bombadil creates an off-beat approach to folk-pop with odd lyrics and a unique songwriting style. You definitely get that on the new album.
One moment filled with life and full-blown instrumentation, Bombadil is just as apt to drop the bottom out for a harmony four-part a capella. “Leather Belt” and “I Will Wait” both start in this manner, while tracks like “Laundromat” and “On Whole Year” bring out heavier instrumentation fronted by catchy folk-pop vocals.
All That The Rain Promises came out this week on Ramseur Records.
