NEW MUSIC: Helen Townsend – Devils Curse

Fremantle-based Helen Townsend has released a new single, taken from her forthcoming 2021 EP Love Lies ‘n’ Leaving and it finds her dialling into that Americana folk sound that singer-songwriters such as Gillian Welch do so well.

The song, co-written with Belle Harvey and featuring Shannon Smith, is a cry out to that loved one who is making all the wrong choices and heading down a path of destruction. Confessing their own weaknesses, Townsend and Smith plead for the listener to turn around to avoid “The Devils Path”. It all works wonderfully well, from the dobro to the harmonies, with all signs suggesting a strong EP is on the way.
