Northern Kentucky’s pastoral Rock foursome Wallace Woods released its first single, “Father’s Son,” last year as part of a compilation of songs by artists on the SofaBurn Records label. This weekend, the quartet (which includes members of bands like Alone at 3am and Heroes and Madmen) is releasing a new self-titled EP with the area label.
The EP features the melancholic track “Trouble You No More,” which offers a great representation of Wallace Woods’ emotive and dynamic sound, showing a rich but subtle and nuanced vibe that resembles some of the more effective Indie Folk acts drawing big crowds these days, though with a bit more robustness.
“At its most basic level, this song attempts to capture the essence of how 'home' isn't a place, but a feeling,” the band says about “Trouble You No More.” “Sometimes that feeling only comes about when you have found a particular person. As the saying goes 'you can never go home again,' so is the case of a relationship that has ended. The two people are never the same and might struggle relentlessly to recapture that feeling of home.”
Check out the premiere of “Trouble You No More” below.
The band hosts a free release shindig Saturday evening in honor of the new EP at Octave in Covington. Sarah Davis opens the night at 7 p.m. A limited number of hand-packaged and signed copies of the EP will be available at the show.
