There’s still time to get on the Camp Bedford hype train before it leaves the station at the end of the month, and you better believe us when we say their new song is brilliant. The Brooklyn queer folk-pop trio blend elements of everything from the expected Americana and bluegrass to the maximalism of hyperpop – their debut EP So Often & So Sweet is definitely worthy of investigation if you’re even slightly intrigued.
Shades of First Aid Kit, Wye Oak and The Staves bleed through on ‘Jupiter’, a song which, in the band’s words, is “about recognizing the parts of yourself that no longer serve you and setting them on fire. Written like a spell or incantation, this track’s ethereal elements and driving energy capture the experience of surrendering to your own power.”
It’s a complex affair, laden with stacked harmonies and deft instrumental layering, but still demonstrates that the three-piece know their way around a hook. Cellist Tallen Gabriel arguably steals the show, but is given a run for her money by guitarists and vocalists Roxanne Quilty and Mariela Flor Olivo. The result is nothing short of beautiful, and it tees up the EP perfectly – out on Friday March 31st, you’ll find a lot to love if you’re a fan of this. We’re delighted to premiere ‘Jupiter’; tune in below:
