Brandi Carlile - The Firewatcher's Daughter

Regular price $26.00 $0.00

 

For her fifth studio album, The Firewatcher’s Daughter, the artist approached the songwriting and production more organically. The result is a collection of songs anchored by the rich storytelling we’ve to expect from Brandi Carlile and her band, as well as a sense of freedom expressed through some of the most unhinged, blatantly rock and roll songs of her career. Our first taste of new music came in the form of “The Eye.” With a Rumors-era Fleetwood Mac guitar and lush three-part harmonies, the song has a retro country feel at which Carlile excels, and the harmonies are tighter than ever. Those harmonies, of course, come courtesy of “The Twins,” Tim and Phil Hanseroth. Press for The Firewatcher’s Daughter revealed that they too have started families of their own since their last outing with Carlile. This new outlook makes the record feel more like a group effort than any of Carlile’s preceding efforts. Just listen to “Wilder (We’re Chained)”, a song with a palpable wisdom about appreciating unconditional bonds. “We’re chained / and when everything else changes / our love will stay the same.” -Glide Magazine
