The Lone Bellow – Zach Williams, Kanene Donehey, Pipkin, Brian Elmquist – have a new album, Half Moon Light, set for release on February 7th and ‘Wonder’ sets the scene for the new record in quite lovely fashion.
They play it quite straight with chords that hang in the air, shuffling drums and a warm and wistful atmosphere that permeates the song. Williams’ vocal is perfectly placed. It wanders and gently pushes and pulls the melody through the fabric of the music – lifting the emotional weight where required, retreating into the shadows when intimacy is the order of the day.
