I was close to calling this new song “Drifters” from The Dandelion War an instrumental tune since the lyrics and vocals are extremely hushed and low in the mix. You might also rush to that conclusion upon first listen with the sounds conveyed similar to Sigur Ros meets This Will Destroy You. It’s lengthy, it’s epic, and it’s completely open to your own interpretation. The band have a new album, We Were Always Loyal to Lost Causes, coming on September 12th via Deep Elm Records. Right now we’ve only got a stream for you.
