Shoegazin' Alt-Country Outfit Cowboy Junkies
The Cowboy Junkies heady blend of folk, country, and blues with a dreamy pop quality lies at the intersection between the old school Americana legends and the new school of poetic, hazy rock championed by the likes of The Velvet Underground. The ever popular genre-bending outfit is hitting the road on tour, bringing their sleepy siren songs along for the ride.
Writing soft songs with an emphasis on space, the band's sound is the perfect foundation for lead singer Margo Timmins' ethereal vocals. Her lilting melodies lull the listener into a bittersweet sense of detachment while their downbeat but driving rhythms have a hypnotic, navel-gazing effect. Their exploration of light and shade makes for a mellow evening of chilled-out tunes and slow tempos.
