Dead Oceans, Nashville based project, Night Beds have released their "Even If We Try/ You Were Afraid" 7" single. It's hauntingly beautiful stuff filled with strings and hush lullaby like vocals. Expect to hear a lot more from this group in the months to come, including the release of their upcoming full length 'Country Sleep.'
Here's a little blurb from the bands website about the forthcoming LP, "So the songs come together over acoustic guitars, over the first
skeletal melodies, and then they grow. Yellen’s voice takes on a pure
kind of thirst when wrapped in the sonic landscapes he devises. It’s
searching. It’s taken several years to map everything out, but after a
hiatus spent driving the deserts and prairies and coastal roads of the
United States, sleeping in a hatchback or on friendly couches – after a
long time spent alone – Night Beds has found a home in Nashville. Soon
it will see the release of Country Sleep, a full-length album in the
spirit of the vagabond, in the winding path to a place of good rest."
