Hear ye! Hear ye!
I have stumbled upon some fantastic music, thanks to Labelled Independent. It comes from Flaming June and is a mixture of folk and fairytale. It can be lively and it can be pensive.
A new EP, Rumpelstiltskin & the Perils of Womanhood, comes out 15 April and the title track is the epitome of what Flaming June is described as. The vocals are deep and immediately root themselves deep, piquing interest. The chorus satisfies any need for folk type music. The power that surges through the lyrics is enhanced by the accompaniment of instruments and it almost sounds as if the character of the song has embarked on an epic adventure (of course writing this during the adverts of Once Upon a Time puts me in mind of Emma).
It sets a benchmark for their other tracks, which are numerous if you’re scrolling through Sound Cloud, all of them have different strengths but each display that distinctive voice.
Once you’ve given Rumpelstiltskin a listen you should try Rejoice. It stands out from the others because of its liveliness. It has more energy than some of the others and it’s a good track to listen to if you’re just starting. Plus, the violin is awesome.
