Finding inspiration at the intersection of folk-pop and indie-rock, the collaboration of The Western Den builds a gorgeous soundscape around a velvety duet and an orchestral-sounding rhythm section: big piano intervals, french horns, and the sound of mallets. But beyond that, the precision of the emotional moment is tangible, and more than a bit heartbreaking.
Dripping with a painful honesty, the reality is that this relationship is probably not going to make it:
But the strong survive, even when the ship goes down; such is life.
The Western Den is a musical partnership between Deni Hlavinka and Chris West. This song is featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
