Remnose will host an album release show tonight at Hamtramck’s Ant Hall.
The Ferndale indie folk-rock quartet will team up with the Drinkard Sisters and Kubat, Finlay, and Rose to celebrate the release of “Waiting on the Wind,” a beautiful 13-track album filled with rich harmonies, jangling pianos, somber lap steel guitars, massive swells of synths and gentle sweeps of cello and violin.
“I think we’re going to play as many of those new songs as we can, I just don’t know if we’ll be able to do all 13 of them. If people want to stick around, and they want to hear an old song or two at the end, then we’re always willing to play for them,” said Marlon Morton, Remnose’s vocalist and rhythm guitarist.
“We have Kubat, Finlay, and Rose opening, and they’re amazing. I want as many people to see them because they’re like a Crosby, Stills & Nash female edition, and all three independently are super talented, but together, it’s really a super group. The Drinkard Sisters are our best friends, and we love them so much, and we’re honoring they’re playing.”
For Remnose, “Waiting on the Wind” is the most complete and complex piece of work they’ve released. As the band’s fifth release, it begins on the open sea with the title track bouncing the listener softly and slowly from wave to wave, while the mourning lap steel intimates the sounds of seabirds flying nearby.
From there, the album takes listeners on a highly personalized journey. Themes of helplessness and hopefulness coupled with unwavering optimism and conquerable pessimism serve as mental destinations along the band’s musical sea-faring voyage.
