REVIEW: Tangled Oaks - "Falling"

Bath based Contemporary Folk outfit Tangled Oaks are releasing their debut single "Falling" tomorrow, and Neck of the Woods were lucky enough to hear it in advance.

The first three words that come to mind on first listen; gorgeous, intimate and captivating. For a debut single to sound like this, we are very excited for what's to come for this band.

Weaving and elegant vocals drift in between tasteful violin and banjo, creating a wide but gentle wall of sound. The harmonies are mesmerising and gently hold your hand through the deep lyrical content of relatable uneasy emptiness. There's a clear influence of The Staves, Mumford and Sons, and even Fleetwood Mac scattered throughout the song.

The highlight of the piece is undoubtably the epic and vulnerable final section, with the lyrics 'Don't let me go, I love you so' lingering like a desperate ghost. The surprising rhythmic changes and an emotionally charged acapella ending capture the very essence of the track, getting tangled up between your own feet and feeling a lump in your throat.
