mp3: "Go" - Yowler


The music of Yowler has always served as cathartic confessions, Maryn Jones sending shivers down our spines with the previously released The OfferWe fell in love with the atmospheric darkness and moodiness of the record, along with the intimate and unhurried storytelling. The Offer is getting reissued in June through Double Double Whammy and will include two new tracks, the first of which is "Go." Despite the playful nature of a keyboard and drum machine, "Go" showcases the hallmark honesty and sincerity of Yowler's previous work. "Let it go, let it go," her voice urges before questioning, "I wonder just how far down it goes?" As the song goes on, the height of Jones' vocals increase, floating upward and outward, matching her mantra of moving on. There's a comforting nature in Jones' work, a reminder that we're all putting the pieces together, finding what fits and what doesn't, learning to let go.
