Pleasingly Dark Roots/Country/Gospel/Etc.
on November 19, 2012
I'll be frank...I'm not the biggest fan of country in the "traditional" sense. I find it fairly boring, sometimes bordering on annoying. However, I am a fan of roots/folk/gospel music--like the soundtrack for the movie "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" with its roots-country sensibilities, gospel influences, and sometimes darker themes and melodies.
This song, I'm happy to say, has it all. It has a heavy gospel influence, and the chain effects, snare drums, and backing vocals in the song give it a surprisingly old sound--like something from the Civil War era. What's more, it has a suitably dark theme and dark melody, with incredible leading vocals that really make the song shine.
Delta Rae has a real gem here in this eerie blast from the past. If you, like me, are no huge fan of "modern" country, this song can easily be a favorite. Best of luck to Delta Rae, and I hope to see more music this incredible in the future!
