Erin Durant “Take A Load Off” – Listen

Erin Durant has shared the lead single from her second album ‘Islands‘, to be released in June.  Produced by TV on the Radio’s Kyp Malone  it perfectly showcases Durant’s perfect vocal and elegant songwriting.  ‘Take a Load Off‘ is a tale of travelling, but there’s a dreamy disconnect – a feeling assisted by the lush pedal steel and Durant’s words “I’ve been travelling by word of mouth / Is this some folk tale I’ve been told about ? /  I’ve been travelling by word, a bit confused where I am.”

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
