In 2017 the first album from Faeland was released with the beautiful lead song “We’re just a love song” and i thought wow what a great album and compared it with the first Civil Wars album “Barton Hollow” from 2011 and the song “20 years”. It had that same country/americana feel.
Whats the next album going to be like? Its always the question with new bands/musicians.
The next album “When i close my eyes” is now here and it does not disappoint… i see it as a positive collection of songs for today.
Rebecca Nelson has a clear and beautiful voice similar to that of Cara Dillon and Olivia Chaney and she sings across great melodies and great musicianship. Jacob Morrison does great work on guitar and a collection of other fine musicians add their instruments to emphasize and fill out the sound.
“When i close my eyes” starts with “Easier” – a lovely introduction to the album and then moves into “Was”which includes the refrain so we sing along and the song goes on . my interpretation of this is the need to keep music alive in these difficult pandemic times.
“Little Lights” contains the phrase count our blessings, there’s one for every star in the sky… another positive statement.
There are twelve strong and relevant songs on this well recorded and well produced album. I encourage you to delve into them and enjoy the music…..
