Glowing House - Days Out
Glowing House-Taming Lions
I’ve got to take a second from the usual sound of posts on here to bring this amazing track to your ears. While I’m personally not a huge fan of folk music other than a few exceptions (Fleet Foxes, My Morning Jacket, Laura Marling) Denver’s Glowing House led by husband and wife Steve Varney and Jess Parsons have changed my perspective on the genre. I came across this band by way of Colorado record label Holy Underground who’s signed CR featured artists such as Cerulean and Flashlights and what I heard was quite a nice surprise. “Taming Lions” is the first single from Glowing House’s sophomore album Days Out, due out on June 9th, and it’s nothing short of powerful. The main thing that I love about this song other than Varney’s raw, soulful vocals is the beautiful selection of instrumentation and how it sounds calm yet carries so much emotion. I’ll certainly be on the lookout for when Days Out is released but in the meantime you can listen to their debut LP The Annual Demise Of Every Aspen on Spotify. Be sure to grab “Taming Lions” for yourselves via bandcamp or soundcloud where it’s available for free.
