Artist: Woods

Track: “Sun City Creeps”

WOODS

Woods’ brand of indie folk always seems to find a comfortable sweet spot between eerie and inviting. With a haunting vocal performance from Jeremy Earl and seductive brass, ‘Sun City Creeps’ is every bit as enticing as it needs to be to kick off the band’s latest LP properly, yet it doesn’t bite off more than it can chew. Despite Woods’ unique style, it’s their knack for subtlety that makes their music so rewarding, and ‘Sun City Creeps’ is no exception. The song’s a perfect portrayal of the band’s creative spark, with funky guitar sections and triumphant mariachi horns that wouldn’t feel out of place one bit in the Red Dead Redemption video game.

Few bands are able to incorporate such a wide array of influences without sacrificing their identity, but Woods are one of them. Whether it’s the alluring vocals of Earl who sounds uncannily similar to Justin Vernon at times or the seemingly effortless folk instrumentation, there’s a lot to love about Woods. ‘Sun City Creeps’ is just another excellent addition to their discography, and likely only a hint of the brilliance buried within their upcoming LP, City Sun Eater in the River of Light.

City Sun Eater in the River of Light will be released on April 8th through the singer’s very own label, Woodsist Records.

RIYL: Bon Iver, Tigers on Trains, The Byrds.

This is pretty great as expected. I'll probably listen to the stream at some point soon but I'll probably get the album on its release regardless.
