This husband-and-wife team has a knack for writing harmonies that feel entirely synergistic, cohabiting a space were they are one voice together. Upon hearing Arbour Season the duet stands out every time: the easy timing between leads, the vast bed of tones and ripples of sound between two voices and a few plucked strings.
It's a melancholic elegy for the summer that lies behind us. Ahead lies hope, the necessary future, the unblemished night sky; a quiet and peaceful place with flowing rivers, fresh air, and a harmonica. Let us all sing together.
