The Nocturnes, Free Music Friday at OnlineRock - July 29

by Andrew McNair

This week I've found a single from LA band, The Nocturnes. "The Road," is a slow, reverb-heavy song from their upcoming release Aokigahara. It's got the close, folk harmonies of groups like Fleet Foxes, but keeps the vocals low in the mix and interweaves them with a mournful guitar counterpoint. The end result is a post-rock/folk/shoegaze situation. The single comes with two remixes that venture into more ambient territory. If you're a fan of Red Sparowes, you'll want to check this out, as it's led by guitarist Emma Ruth Rundle.
