Fans of morose romantic introspective wrapped up in a bed of restoratively light Indie Folk Blues guitar are going to want to turn their attention to the latest release from up and coming Washington-based artist Lanterns of Hope.
“There Was This Girl” was released on July 29th and provides a striking serving of authentic, candid, and captivating slightly vintage sound. The reminiscences which Lanterns of Hope shares with the likes of Leonard Cohen and Elliot Smith amplifies the accessibility of There Was This Girl, yet, plenty of distinction can be found in the raw human emotion which has been poured into the single. Narratively compelling tracks such as There Was This Girl will always be timeless.
You can stream and download Lanterns of Hope’s latest single There Was This Girl for yourselves by heading over to Bandcamp.
