Following the captivating “Take a Sudden Turn,” Luke Janela shows us another slice of his upcoming album (A RIVAL, releasing 7/31) with “Many Mountains.” Quaint acoustics and tender vocals start the song off with a cozy, intimate feel. Layers of cello and mounting rhythms escalate as the track progresses. Certainly less morose-sounding than “Take a Sudden Turn” and more in the vein of spacious folk music, “Many Mountains” is another success from Janela, whose upcoming album A RIVAL is poised to be a good one.
“‘Many Mountains’ is a song about ending up where you are supposed to be, unexpectedly,” Luke says. “It comes off as a hearty folk song, and features warm, complex layers of cello and vocals.”
“Many Mountains” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of July 2019’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Indie Folk.
