BONNY LIGHT HORSEMAN – ” Someone To Weep For Me “

Posted: September 30, 2022 in MUSIC

Bonny Light Horseman’s anticipated sophomore album finds them focusing more on original material than their debut LP — which was largely made up of old folk songs — was, and the new single “Someone To Weep For Me” has that same timeless old soul as the standards.

Bonny Light Horseman’s debut was a folk masterclass, re-imagining centuries-old standards with effortless grace and wonder. Those Grammy-nominated, list-topping songs not only suggested renewed possibilities for aging songbooks but also marked the arrival of a trio fully capable of reorienting the wider folk landscape. “Rolling Golden Holy” marks their return with preternatural beauty, charm, and imagination. This is a band working at the edge of modern folk. The band thrives in rendering fresh wisdom and insight from old models, whether scraps of ancient songs or the spark of entwined voices. Theirs is a space created for sharing, learning, risking, singing, and playing as one.

The new album is the band’s testament to interdependence, partnership, and trust at a moment when we crave such connections so much. Anaïs Mitchell, Josh Kaufman and Eric D. Johnson as a trio fully appreciate what they have found in one another through Bonny Light Horseman; on “Rolling Golden Holy”, we get to live inside that magic, too.

The forthcoming album Rolling Golden Holy, out 7th October 2022 with 37d03d Records.
