Conversations with Bears – Washed Away

To the south, my prairie neighbours in Calgary are stirring simmering folk melodies. Conversations with Bears is Lucien Lahey, who is steadily outputting captivating singles on his bandcamp page. This particular recording grabbed me in the first few seconds. His fingers scrape over quiet guitar, building suddenly into layered vocals. There is a winter distance to the first chorus, as if the wind carried it howling through the middle of the song. Bon Iver-like darkness rests heavily over the entire recording.

Listen to the song and visit Conversations with Bears’ Bandcamp page frequently. I can’t wait for the next single to drop.
