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“.
