SHORT BIO

Since its inception, the band's sound has centered around the songwriting of Sara MacDonald, which one reviewer noted as being “laced with a wisdom that comes from experience without being bitter”. On All Blue and Gold, the august arrival merges a modern soundscape and acoustic instrumentation. Electric guitars and synths blend with cello, accordion, zither, and layered percussion. Sara MacDonald's voice is clear and intimate while being surrounded by lush harmonies, yet the sound never strays too far from its acoustic upbringings and focus on songwriting. The 'Ghost' showcases where most songs start for the august arrival; a stripped-down intimate acoustic track with a haunting melody and vocal take that causes one to wonder if you should feel a bit guilty for eavesdropping on someone’s reflective private moment.
