Track premiere: Caroline Reese “Nicotine”

“Two Horses” is the new EP by Pennsylvania raised singer-songwriter Caroline Reese which lands on September 8th, and Gawd bless her she’s shared a track from it with us to delight both of your ears (or one if you’re listening in mono). It’s a lovely piece of subtle alt-country of which she told us: “Nicotine” is about the summer I turned 18, when I was working on a Montana ranch and fell head-over-heels in love with the state and a boy I met at the gas station all at the same time. I had to leave them both to go to college and it broke my heart, but I thought that, eventually, I would get over it. I never did, and seven years later I finally got the courage to move back out there. So “Nicotine” is reminiscing about the past, but is also poised at the present, at the moment before I changed my life dramatically.”
