Golden Oak “Maple Spring” – Listen

Siblings Zak and Lena Kendall make up the Maine based GoldenOak released the gently grooving folk-tinged EP ‘Foxgloves‘ last year and have a new release coming together for later this year.  Their latest single is ‘Maple Spring‘ which benefits from semi-shamanistic percussion, a brace of clarinets and a sweet brass section.  It’s a song that draws on Golden Oak’s concerns about the emotional and physical impact of climate change, a theme that will run through their Fall of 2020 album release.

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?
