I’m pretty sure that no acoustic Folk track has ever progressed through such an explosive prelude. There may or may not have been some profanity at the cataclysmically concordant build up of ethereal energy as the track kicked into verse – and that was just the first thirty seconds of the track.
Jo’ & Eliah’s approach to their prodigal sound comes together through experimentation with Alt Rock and Acoustic Folk by weaving together the delicate quintessence of Folk and the anthemic energy of Alt Rock. On top of the instrumentals, you can expect archetypally Indie vocals which carry such visceral emotion, it’s almost overwhelming.
You can check out Jo’ & Eliah’s single Walking in Snow from their 2018 album Introverse by heading over to SoundCloud now. Each of the tracks are as overwhelmingly resonant as the last. I think I may have found a new favourite album.
