The Southern Belles - “Away We Go”
The Southern Belles are back with a brand new single for your pretty little ears. Recorded at Virginia Moonwalker Studios by Russell Lacy and engineered and mastered by Bob Rupe (Sparklehorse, Cracker), the track will hopefully be part of the upcoming second LP to be recorded this spring at the same studio. Lacy really made use of stereo recording to create a giant space amongst the instruments and speakers, beginning the track on one side with guitar strums (Adrian Ciucci) and fret noise before bright piano enters the picture (Tommy Booker) on the other side. Drawing from influences of The Band (even shouting out to Levon Helm, I think, in the first line), “Away We Go” aches with a twangy organ and emotive cowboy ramblings via talkboxed vocals by Ciucci. The mix is reminiscent of The Dead or Jerry Garcia Band, adding a Southern rock vein to a heady alt-country anthem.
