NYC Folk Outfit Macabre Americana Release Soulful New Single "Mother"
The latest effort from NYC folk band Macabre Americana finds the group delivering a soulful ode to Mother Earth. Released just a few days ago for Earth Day, “Mother” is another example of what Macabre Americana accomplish so effortlessly time and time again — construct substantial narratives that give voice and value to our world.
“Mother” opens with a stunning piano-led arrangement, lush keys leading into husky vocals performing a soulful delivery among a composition that continues to grow. New layers of tone and emotion start cropping up in the rich brass section that offers a buzzing thrum, the percussive shimmers, the sear of electric strings. What starts off as a stirring tribute to Mother Earth spirals into a soundscape fully composed, a composite of choral voices and orchestral divinity joining forces for one of Macabre Americana’s most emotive efforts yet.
