New Music from Youth in a Roman Field

You might recognize the voice of Claire Wellin, who plays violin and sings withSan Fermin…but she’s currently working on her own Youth in a Roman Field project. The tune below has this vocal fragility to it, almost as if Wellin is holding something back. Musically, the vocals work over light string arrangements and careful chord strums working atop a simple piano backbone. But just before we hit the two minute mark, the strings pick up pace, horns enter the picture, and the song jumps into this swelling folk opus that’s delightful. This song will feature on the new Storm Conductor LP, slated for release later this year. She’s hitting the road this week in the Midwest; check tour dates HERE.
