The Arcadian Wild, Silence, A Stranger Review
Indie folk is being represented well by a trio that understands the core values of the sound. The Arcadian Wild is such a group, they approach their music with an openness, but more than that a powerfully resonating sound that is heartfelt and honest. Born in the cradle of a town known for great songwriting, the Nashville natives Lincoln Mick, Sarah Wood, and Isaac Horn create folk music with complex, almost orchestral arrangements. Though they write on classic folk instruments, their approach is approached with the depth of symphonic writing with lush melodies, strong counterpoint and the strong point of folk innately beautiful harmonies. They have a new single out “Silence, A Stranger,” a deeply hued song that is the best of the groups articulate abilities.
Silence, A Stranger
Silence, A Stranger (single)
Release Date: January 11, 2019
Cleverly built melodies, tightly woven harmonies and lyrics that give reverence to their upbringing. Excellent playing, you can hear the bluegrass influence peculating in the undertones.
