The trio display their songwriting chops through a diverse instrumentation that results in a more dynamic composition that keeps the listener engaged while taking them on a sonic journey. All in all, “Fault Lines” soothes and flows like quiet backroad, making this one great song to lift you out of those Tuesday blues.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
The Currys have been staking their claim within the Americana music scene for years, cutting their teeth in the oyster bars and listening rooms of the Florida Panhandle, Brothers Tommy and Jimmy Curry and cousin Galen Curry have been praised for their “tight-as-a-rubber-band” harmonies and “infectious” songwriting. Their new release, This Side of the Glass, relies on those harmonies to provide the lived-in feel of roots music, but the album has ambitions, at times straying beyond the borders of the folk/singer-songwriter tradition. The trio shares songwriting duties, each in turn offering his take on the time-worn themes of life and love. This Side of the Glass is an insightful and satisfying new chapter from a band with many more stories to tell.
