If you need to listen to something warm and pleasant to help get you through this rather dismal week, then do yourself a favor and check out Shelterheart’s latest single, the breezy “In Photographs.”
Shelterheart is comprised of two friends, Luke and Wren, who have been remotely collaborating musically from across the country for over a decade. The pair create evocative folk rock tracks that focus heavily on melody and harmony. Their music is often catchy, well-polished and lush with synthesized orchestration. These qualities are especially evident on “In Photographs,” which is off their upcoming full-length self-titled album on Perpetual Doom Records. Check it out below:
This song utilizes acoustic guitars, a tight drum beat and waves of digital strings to create a tender atmosphere. This particularly bright sound is the perfect foundation for Wren’s soaring Jim James-like vocals that tug hard on your heartstrings.
If the strength of Shelterheart’s songwriting skills here moved you, be sure to preorder their upcoming record from Perpetual Doom ahead of its April 8th release. Click here to get yours now.
