The Belle Jar- Union Station
Mar 5, 2014
After his 2005 debut album, Sometimes, Dallas Green, the lone member of City And Colour (a band name that comes directly from Green's actual name), had something left to prove. That's not to say Sometimes was a weak album; it just hinted at more than it was. Bring Me Your Love, his newest release pleases listeners as it welcomes them into the depths of his soul.
With a sound somwhat akin to Iron & Wine (not only in band name), City And Colour uses lush acoustic instrumentation and the occasional harmonica to create folky, almost ambient tracks. Green, singer from the screamo band Alexisonfire, surprises with his soothing voice and attention to melody on Bring Me Your Love. Not your stereotypical solo acoustic singer-songwriter, City And Colour has successfully made his mark.
Watch and listen below to "Waiting...," the first single off his new album, Bring Me Your Love!
