A live acoustic version of ‘Marjorie’ from our debut album ‘deltas’, originally recorded for NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest in 2017. We’re re-releasing this on April 4th, 2021 — what would have been Marjorie’s 96th birthday. “’Marjorie’ is a haunting, immersive folk track that manages to keep the endearing folk-pop melodies in the instrumentals and the vocals. There’s a lot of space here, as if it were recorded in a very tall building such as a church; that sort of grandeur gives the track a blend of the intimate haunting melodies of Blind Pilot and the sweeping expanses of the The Barr Brothers..”

The song was inspired by the disappearance of USAF Flight 2469 in 1950 (​). Our singer’s grandfather was one of 44 passengers on board. The plane was never found.


Reddening West is a band from Austin, Texas.
