There are few times when you encounter an artist’s sound, and you’re floored by the stunning nature of their sound. While H.C. McEntire has been on our radar for a while, her latest single “Final Bow” will stop you in your tracks as soon as you hear it. Taken from her upcoming album Eno Axis, the North Carolina singer songwriter delves deep within her soul and takes you with her.
Maybe it’s the Southern swing of the song, but from the jump McEntire offers an emotive tone that makes the song feel as if it’s being sung directly to you. Showcasing the strongest songwriting from her so far, the track begins with drums and a reeling guitar that sways like molasses dripping off a short stack. McEntire’s vocals are tender yet direct while the constructive nature of the song flows between soft and deeply emotional. The power in the riffs, her honest voice and the lyrics altogether form a bond that hits your ears and never leaves. The video features a woman falling into a pool and continuously swimming, much like the free flowing nature of the song itself.
The video for “Final Bow” can be seen above or on YouTube. The song can be streamed on all streaming platforms. Eno Axis is ready to be preordered directly from Merge Records ahead of its August 07 release.
