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.
