The Deep Dark Woods’ moniker tells you exactly what you need to know about their musical identity. Mysterious, rustic, gothic and meditative, The Deep Dark Woods make music that stirs an elemental, perhaps even subconscious sense of cabin fever in us all. The Deep Dark Woods write songs that ramble, jangle and roll through folk, roots and rock traditions with self-assured ease, like a train that travels through the night with its own rugged precision.
The Deep Dark Woods’ follow-up to The Place I Left Behind is an adventurous, fluid record that showcases the band’s strongest songwriting to date and celebration of the band’s sense of community and friendship. Jubilee straddles the opposing forces of nostalgia and evolution in its fusion of traditional foundations with neo-psychedelic flourishes.
Exclaim notes the new elements that shape Jubilee, such as the “swaths of fuzz” and “nocturnal atmospheres,” which bring more electric dimensions to the band’s signature folk-rock sound.
