With only a month until the release of their new LP, Milwaukee band Blessed Feathers is happy to release the second single from the record, Stinging Nettle, Honeysuckle. Nipping at the heels of the first single, By Song Through The Americas, which centered around Donivan Berube’s sultry baritone as a jubilant kickoff, this track dials things back to focus on the delicate voice and arrangement surrounding Jacquelyn Beaupre.
The new album, From the Mouths of the Middle Class is an intricate web of equal parts youthful freedom and earthy timbre. The muse of a long, harsh winter spent writing and recording in an underheated Wisconsin house, the result is a gorgeously understanded soundtrack to the final days of summer – when nature is still ringing in your ears, but you know that fall is right around the corner.
Much like By Song Through the Americas was a song of travel and an ode to summer’s end, Stinging Nettle, Honeysuckle is a bitterly beautiful reminder of winter’s immediacy in the Midwest.
As Blessed Feathers gear up to go out on tour in September, they’ve recently launched a Kickstarter to help raise money for touring costs, specifically renting a van. Please help spread the word and help to get this excellent band on the road! For more information, head to their Kickstarter page.
From the Mouths of the Middle Class is out September 20th on Listening Party Records.
