so, the wilderness of manitoba, a folk band from canada, has a really organic feel to them. tending to shy away from using electric instruments in their music, they rely instead on beautiful harmonies built around a mixture of warm, strong, clear voices (of in particular note, melissa dalton’s voice is sublime).
case in point: orono park. have a listen to the golden guitar pluckings, the voices that build upon each other, complementing the entire time, and the strong drums and piano beats that steadily create three and a half minutes of pure folk music magic.
blood boils through your veins and then
flows gently like the nile
but i will come home again tonight
flowing rivers may’ve stopped me when
when i held onto the shore
but i still chased after you tonight
