Liv Greene “New York’s Arms” – Listen

Liv Greene’s new song ‘New York’s Arms‘ is a beautiful song about lifting yourself up after a let down.  In this case that of seeing “you in the arms of another that night” and the realisation that “it’s easier to move on the further that I go.”  Tinged with sadness that it is, there’s also a celebration of the joys of wanderlust and a New York morning.

And ‘New York’s Arms‘ could have been just a lovely bluegrass tinged folksong, but in an inspired move it includes some crunching electric guitar from Isa Burke which, competing with a rolling banjo line,  makes for a compelling listen.  The upcoming album ‘Every Bright Penny‘ should be something well worth hearing.

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?
