As far as epic new albums coming Farm To Table by Bartees Strange could be the next big thing. With a big voice and a bigger personae, the lyricist could be ready to be the next big thing on 4ad Records. With a new album coming in June, his latest single “Hold The Line” is a song that really grips a hold of your heart and digs its way into your soul,
“Hold The Line” opens with emotive vocals that grab a hold of your ears and don’t let go. His voice has so much emotive content to it that it could make anyone cry. The lyrical video above spells it all out with hearty words. Covering the George Floyd disaster, the song holds words that can evoke the strongest of memories. Even at the halfway point the emotions are still high. Against the drums and the swaying guitar, Strange makes the most of the case while holding your ears with the delicate guitar notes. The song holds moments of grief and of joy together to come out swinging and not be taken down.
The song can be streamed above via YouTube or wherever you stream music. His new album Farm To Table is ready for preorder directly from 4AD Records. Bartees Strange is set to hit the road starting July 01 in Six-fours-les-plagues, France at Lle Du Gaou until October 01 at All Things Must Go Music Festival in Columbia, MD. His tour can be accessed here.
