NEW MUSIC: Gold Light & Snakemusk – The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter

There’s a dreamy late-night roadhouse vibe on this track from two Asheville, NC musicians – Gold Light (Joe Chang) & Snakemusk (Beau Campolong). Mazzy Star is an obvious reference point given it’s soaked in a similar noir heartache and organic shuffling sway but this also has more of a 60s folk vibe built into its DNA. A great song, we’re looking forward to hearing the rest of the record when it’s out next month.

Their debut LP Shadows In The Shallows is set for release on May 10th.

Shoulder up your gun whistle up your hounds
Early bird might get the worm but the field’s a battleground
You’ll always have a puncher’s chance if you can stand another round
But it’s gonna take a posse if you wanna drag me down

Cus the heart is a lonely hunter it seems 
But your heart will miss it’s mark if it comes after me
Like a dog gone and barked up the wrong tree
Cus the heart’s gonna go wherever it please

Saddle up your horses don’t forget your map 
Though where you’re going takes you off the beaten path
But keep moving forward boy keep settin’ up them traps
Cus once you’ve had a taste of my love you ain’t ever turning back

Cus the heart is a lonely hunter it seems 
But your heart will miss it’s mark if it’s aiming for me
Like a shot in the dark you won’t ever see me bleed
Cus the heart’s gonna do whatever it please

They say you love something you have to set it free 
But nothing I ever let lose ever come back to me
Sometimes I catch your scent coming in on a breeze
And baby it drops me to my knees
Oh baby please come back to me

So shoulder up your gun whistle up your hounds 
It’s gonna take everything you got if you wanna track me down
When you hear them dogs howlin’ somewhere deep within them woods
You always got another shot ‘fore you hang your gun up for good

Cus the heart is a lonely hunter it seems 
But your heart will miss it’s mark if you’re aiming for me
Looks like your dogs gone and barked up the wrong tree
Cus the heart’s gonna go wherever it please
