If you dig traditional folk instruments, emotionally charged vocals and a band with sound that could fill an entire amphitheatre then you’ve just found yourself a new favorite band. Enter The Last Bison, a seven person ensemble originally from the deep marshes of southeastern Virginia. Folk rock at it’s very best, this group has been compared to the sound of Mumford & Sons, Fleet Foxes and the Avett Brothers. Listen to this track and you’ll understand exactly what I am talking about.
The poetic lyrics and gold dusted vocals in “Switzerland” will carry you out to a cornfield on a farm somewhere, reminding you that simple, artisan music still exists. The full five minutes of this track are deeply hypnotizing. What makes it that much better is Ben Hardesty’s vocals, especially when uttering the word “Switzerland” over and over again losing his breath while still sounding utterly perfect. The song is off their Inheritance EP, which came out on October 23rd. You can find it on their Soundcloud page. Support the artist and buy yourself the perfect Pumpkin-Spice-latte-sipping music out there.
