Elijah and the Moon: The Lonesome World Beyond The Trees
How much room do you have in your music collection for another folk band? Not a lot? Well this one is worth making room for. Elijah and the Moon’s first proper album The Lonesome World Beyond The Trees may have the prerequisite big drums, anthemic choruses and a healthy amount of vocal reverb, but at its core, this is a substance-over-style album. The songs are expertly written and crafted, catchy and unexpected, and mostly just plain beautiful. The string and vocal arrangements are particularly amazing on the album, which sets it apart from other folk bands today. The album has a fantastic cohesive feeling, like it’s taken in best all together as a journey. Perhaps a journey to…the lonesome world beyond the trees?
