Tennessee is Alive is the latest track from the Americana inspired trio Wildeyes. I almost wish I got a word of warning before being treated to some of the most palpably pensive soundscapes I’ve ever heard unravel. Yet paradoxically, Tennessee is Alive is simultaneously uplifting, their melodies and narrative lyrics are a means of pure escapism, a soul-shatteringly stunning one at that.
The weight of emotion poured from Emily Kohavi’s vocals which take hold of your heartstrings before the first verse has even ran through. I could explain the arrangements of the instrumentals, the rhythm and the harmony that Tennessee is Alive progresses seamlessly through, but there are very few words to allude to the smorgasbord of emotion that is drawn from you as the viscerally ethereal single unfolds. So, you’re just going to have to check out Wildeyes’ latest track Tennessee is Alive along with their other singles by heading over to Spotify now.
