Ptarmigan "Spirit Wakes"

Ptarmigan "Spirit Wakes"
Toronto-based folk troupe Ptarmigan are ready to unveil their latest single, "Spirit Wakes" — and Exclaim! has got you covered with an exclusive first listen.
 
The track begins with intricate fingerpicking on an acoustic guitar, gradually building its lush, layered sound with the incorporation of warm vocals, angelic harmonies and gently rolling percussion. Dramatic riffs crash in and out, adding some drama to the sweet, melodic tune. It serves as an introduction to the band's upcoming album, which is expected out in early 2016.
 
Before details of that record arrive, the band will be playing live in their hometown at Burdock Music Hall this evening (November 6). Before you catch them live, give "Spirit Wakes" a spin in the player below.
