Wood Hitch “Gentle Reminder” – Listen

Wood Hitch are Brady Harris and Rose Shawhan, an LA based duo who make Americana-Folk-Pop as showcased on their new eponymous debut EP.  Brady plays the music, both trade vocals, and the sound is dreamy and timeless – could have been recorded this year (as it was) or fifty years ago. Gentle Reminder‘ epitomises that timeless feeling – on the surface it’s a nostalgic love song, but listen a little deeper and it reveals itself as a heartbreaker – where everyday things trigger memories that bring the world to a jarring halt with thoughts that are inescapable “Gentle reminder / A piece of the past / You always find me / No matter where I’m at“.

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?
