Painting Over Pictures (CD)


Painting Over Pictures (CD)


In their forthcoming album Painting Over Pictures, a colorful instrumental backbone supports a raw, honest lyrical body. Nick’s earnest songwriting and Bryce’s eclectic arrangements make for a compelling combination. The duo draws inspiration from traditional folk and contemporary music alike, and the result is an emotional and infectious record that deepens in meaning and scope the more you listen to it. Boasting an expanded palette that includes a string quartet, a horn section, and a host of other musical textures, Painting Over Pictures is the band’s most vivid and expansive album to date.
