Old Man of the Woods Shares Sharks
I’ve really been impressed with the few little trickles of tunes coming from Miranda Elliott’s Old Man of the Woods project. Her work feels like synth pop on the surface, but to me, it feels like she’s crafting these little delicately woven ballads, meant to be shared in secret, only she’s replaced traditional instruments with her synth work. Her voice is powerful enough to carry the weight of the negative space left in the song, though as the tune progresses, you can hear backing vocals overlap just as the beat begins to jump up with a hint of pace. The debut LP, Votives, is out October 15th via Totally Real Records.
