Remnose – “Greenland”


After impressing with “Cures, Diseases” last month, Detroit act Remnose have put out an equally engaging effort in “Greenland.” Twangy guitars establish a delectably infectious melodic presence to start, with emotively crooning vocals emerging shortly after the one-minute mark. The vocals take a reprieve shortly thereafter, allowing the gorgeously twangy and overlapping guitars to highlight the track’s melodic beauty. “Greenland” is another strong showing from this very promising act.

“Greenland” is the second single from Remnose’s forthcoming album Waiting on the Wind, releasing in June. The band adds the following regarding the track and upcoming album:

It was recorded at Stone House Recording in Grand Rapids, MI in May 2018. “Greenland” takes an even deeper dive into new instrumentations and arrangements featured on the rest of the album which their previous single, “Cures, Diseases” only hinted at. The verses are drenched in vocal harmonies and a pounding drum beat while the bridges in between are lush with layers of keys and guitar as well as the ever-present serenade of lap steel. The ambience of “Greenland” is a bit darker than previous Remnose works and serves as an introduction to the shadowy, more ominous corners of the full record to come.

“Greenland” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2019’ Spotify playlist.
