Ottawa art rockers High Waters are gearing up to release their latest LP Goodnight Mara later this week, and before it arrives, Exclaim! is giving you a sneak peek at the new material with the premiere of album cut "Holden."
The band have made a habit out of turning eerie, sombre sounds into beautiful music, and "Holden" continues this tradition. Gently plucked acoustic guitar, swells of strings, booming bursts of percussion and gorgeous vocal harmonies come together to craft a lush but delicate folk number that builds itself up and comes crashing down in all the right places.
The band will be appearing live at Ottawa CityFolk's Marvest offshoot on September 19, which is the same day the record drops. For now, though, listen to the premiere of "Holden" below.
