I’m no stranger to discovering new music already in my collection. One such band is The Horde And The Harem, who’s song “Gold Rush” has been an obsession of mine since I unearthed it a few weeks ago. “Gold Rush” was released on their Harvest EP way back in 2010. So after a quick Google of the band yesterday evening, I discovered they have a brand new LP out (day of, nonetheless!) called A Long Midwinter… out February 2!
From the new album they’ve given us “Chasing Crows”, a song that follows their interesting and quite unique style of Pacific Northwest folk-pop. This style includes a deep baritone vocal accompaniment amidst an array of vocalists, a wide variety of accompanying instruments, and melodies that are highly infectious.
Hear for yourself below, and look for the band’s debut LP (and both their prior EPs) now.
