THE DEEP DARK WOODS DETAIL 2018 TOURING.

DIG INTO YARROW’S INFLUENCES AND BACKSTORIES WITH TRACK-BY-TRACK ALBUM GUIDE.

Yarrow is out now.

The Deep Dark Woods have made their return with Yarrow, a fusion of folk traditions from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, country blues and early gospel with a gothic surrealism that feels both present and spectral. Now, The Deep Dark Woods detail their plans to take Yarrow on the road in the USA, from Michigan to Tennessee, across the desert and up the West Coast.

Watch a performance of “Teardrops Fell,” a song intriguingly described by Folk Radio UK as such: “in the right hands and with the aid of a time machine could have been a hit for Patsy Cline, in a strange way it is also the most modern sounding track here.”

Listen to Yarrow on Spotify and Apple Music.

“WHITEHORSE TICKLED PINK ABOUT THEIR LATEST LOVE CONNECTION.” – HUFFPOST DEBUTS “PINK KIMONO” OFFICIAL VIDEO.

Whitehorse isn’t a one-trick pony.

The cool Toronto-based duo actually named after a remote town waaay north of the U.S. border and embodied by powerhouse couple Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland are no longer satisfied with just writing and playing tunes that sound good. Full of sturm and twang, they capture the emotional essence of a song and make sure to deliver those feelings by any means necessary.
Three months after releasing Panther In The Dollhouse, Whitehorse’s latest album for Six Shooter Records, Doucet and McClelland refuse to play if safe in terms of the musical or topical ground that Whitehorse cover.

To prove it, the husband and wife of 11 years continue their adventurous climb today (Oct. 12) at HuffPost with the music video premiere of “Pink Kimono,” one of 10 cuts they wrote for the intoxicating album.

Watch the official Pink Kimono and read the full story at Huffington Post.

THE DEEP DARK WOODS DETAIL NEW ALBUM, YARROW, OUT 10/27/17 ON SIX SHOOTER RECORDS.

NEW VIDEO FOR “FALLEN LEAVES” OUT TODAY.

Floods and plagues, ghosts and slaughter: woe to those who populate the songs of The Deep Dark Woods’ new album Yarrow. A gentle summer breeze swings the gallows ropes, flowers bloom callously on lovers’ graves. These anthems are definitely not from Eden.

In Yarrow, there’s a juicy unease to frontman Boldt’s presence, as if a new door has opened to let loose the weirdness. In place of the freewheelin’ jammy vibe of previous efforts, the new album has a darker, stranger tenor. “Fallen Leaves,” a song that captures the stinging salinity of loss and the grimy, scuzzed-up “Drifting On A Summer’s Night,” occupy creepier, spookier corners of the folk world. “The Birds Will Stop Their Singing” and “Teardrops Fell” are slow-burning eulogies that demonstrate the potency of Boldt’s distinctly mournful vocals.

Yarrow was borne in a fever – scarlet fever, to be medically specific. A disease of the last century is a fitting backdrop for songs that dig bare handed into the loam to unearth the corpses of old English folk and country blues. After a five-year hiatus and band reconfiguration, Yarrow is The Deep Dark Woods reimagined by leadman Ryan Boldt. Produced by Shuyler Jansen and Ryan Boldt, the new album also features touring companions Kacy & Clayton.

Boldt writes in a deep tradition of bleak and forlorn storytelling, drawing lines from Ireland to Tennessee, the Oxford Girl to Folsom Prison. Since 2012’s Jubilee, Boldt’s outlook has become decidedly more macabre. In these new songs, he taps into a rich vein of gothic surrealism that aligns with some of the great murder balladeers of our time.

The Deep Dark Woods have developed an international following with particular success in the Americana realm, nominated alongside Alabama Shakes and Dawes for Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2012 Americana Music Awards. Originally from Saskatchewan and now based on the west coast, The Deep Dark Woods fuse spooky prairie folk with Texas country blues and California psychedelia.

Six Shooter Records is proud to release Yarrow on October 27, 2017.
